How to build a school CPD programme with impact

Why is the school CPD programme so important? In this guide, we explore how to ensure professional development is effective at improving quality of education in schools.

Professional learning in our sector has come a long way in the last few years. In many schools, the school CPD programme has moved to the centre of strategies for improving quality of education, and is shown to have significant benefits for pupils and staff alike. However, it can still be difficult to fully evaluate the impact of professional learning; how can we measure the improvement in quality of teaching and pupil outcomes?
