Going Beyond CPD
Moving the discussion from the importance of effective CPD for individual teachers to the importance of collaboration.
Read our latest White Paper - Moving the discussion from the importance of effective CPD for individual teachers to the importance of collaboration.
"Building on 'Making the Network for Teachers' (2011), 'Going Beyond CPD' moves the discussion from the importance of effective CPD for individual teachers (building human capital) to the importance of collaboration (building social capital). This paper considers the complexity of this journey and how it can be effectively supported by video and web-based collaboration within and between schools'.

Linked In Group
If it’s of interest there is a discussion taking place on LinkedIn set up to stimulate discussion around what actually works in CPD & ITE.
The group has been established to create a forum for everyone to discuss what makes really effective professional development and consequently raise standards in schools. We want to stimulate challenge and evaluation of traditional approaches, generate contributions about what has worked for colleagues. This is a forum for letting off steam about what hasn’t worked and celebrate what has.
