Continuing Professional Development

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) ... must make a difference otherwise it is merely a paper exercise!

I pondered this statement recently when reflecting upon how easy it is for teachers, assessors and verifiers to become detached from the stresses and rewards of the environment in which their learners work or compete.

"The focus of CPD is firmly on results - the benefits that professional development can bring you in the real world." Source - CIPD, 2009, CIPD on line available from accessed 10072009

For CPD to be meaningful it must encompass learning which, when combined with reflection, confirms existing practices or develops these into better ones. Therefore, CPD needs to be challenging to enable us to keep up to date with current working theories and practices. Thereby enabling us to be dynamic in our teaching/coaching methods and be inspired by the innovations of others.

Continual development has the power to increase the quality of service provision.

Teachers are required to complete 30-hours of CPD per year (mandated by the Institute for Learning; assessors and verifiers are required to complete 2-instances of CPD per year. 

CPD comes in many shapes and forms including attendances at seminars, private study, course attendance, recieving coaching or mentoring, etc. For the most part the governance of CPD assumes that people are already fulfilling their roles as teachers, coaches, assessors and quality assurers; and that the CPD takes them to new understanding to maintain their competence in those roles and increase their knowledge of the things being taught, assessed or quality assured.

Quality is better than quantity and the best CPD records report not only the activity undertaken but also what has been learned and what difference this has made.

Make CPD part of your annual priorities.
