All the evidence suggests that it is the quality of teaching that in the end drives school improvement. Yet for most schools CPD is an ad hoc affair with little grounding in theory or practice.

Professional Development Today e-journal is aimed at improving school practice in CPD, and helping the CPD Coordinator and school leadership team with articles, research and ‘how to’ guides on what works. It has world-class writers on professional development keeping you up-to-date on how to make the most of your most critical resource…teachers!
