Giving all staff the awareness of what choice is available to them, is a huge step forward for any school. This is a 2-page editable template (2016) for middle and senior teachers to adopt to help build a culture of trust, transparency and professional development culture. It will need updating and includes support staff on page 2, but offers a good starting point for schools.
There are several reasons why quality CPD is lacking in our profession, including, to name but a few:
Teaching is not a job that can be achieved from a qualification on paper, yet often the default mode for teacher training is to provide lots of information and expect teachers to be better from receiving it, rather than spending the time learning how to use that information back in the classroom and later refine it. There is a supporting blog which explains why this resource was created in my role as deputy headteacher of a large secondary school in Central London. The aim was to raise the profile of professional development for teachers and support staff.

This is very clear and helpful to consider CPD needs and how they can be achieved for all staff. Thanks.
