Engaging staff effectively with their CPD

Engaging staff effectively with their CPD
How can schools support their staff to engage effectively with their CPD?
Many school leaders struggle to create a CPD programme that is relevant and engaging for all staff, while also ensuring it has a strong pupil-focus – lots of excellent ideas have limited impact without staff engagement.

How can you evaluate your CPD effectively?

How can you evaluate your CPD effectively?
With increasing pressure on schools to ensure that they get the best pupil outcomes, as well as value for money, challenging decisions are required in all areas of their work.
Evidence shows that powerful professional development helps children succeed and teachers thrive. To ensure that the “ingredients” for improvement exist, leaders need to be diligent in guaranteeing staff CPD that focuses on high-quality programmes with maximum impact, while also reinforcing an ethos of ongoing learning.
To evaluate the impact of CPD in the classroom, we must make sure that each CPD activity is aimed at a particular challenge that has been identified in the classroom.
The first question must therefore be ...

Teachers are doing it [CPD] for themselves

Teachers are doing it for themselves
The recent phenomena of teachers using social media to set up TeachMeet networks and delivering CPD for each other, contrasts completely with DfE (UK Gov) and local authority models, such as the National Strategy, London Challenge or the local authority school improvement teams providing brochures for courses that teachers can attend
Without a nationally recognised and useful forum to share good practice, CPD will be left in the hands of all teachers to share concepts that ‘make a difference’ to the lives of children we teach, including our own practice and reflection. People like you or I are spurred on because, for example, TeachMeets do not belong to anyone but us. Professionals are meeting voluntarily from different schools around the UK to share ideas and come together. Why?
A common feature is that they are not following any prescribed models or DfE plans for CPD, instead they are taking their professional development into their own hands. What does this means for the future of school improvement? Will CPD policy become more defragmented than ever?

GTC - Yeacher Professional Development
http://www.gtce.org.uk/gtcinfo/cpdhome.asp
GTC General Teaching Council for England
Professional Development - working towards career-long professional development for all teachers
Teaching is a learning profession, and teachers are committed to continuing professional development (CPD) throughout their careers.
The GTC? professional development advisory committee develops policy to enhance teachers?CPD. The CPD committee believes that a profession that is vibrant and forward-looking has CPD at its heart.
The General Teaching Council for England is an independent professional body with a governing council of 64 Members.
The GTC is an independent professional body for the teaching profession in England. It was set up by the 1998 Teaching and Higher Education Act. It combines statutory advisory and regulatory powers and is answerable to our own members rather than to government.
We provide an opportunity for teachers to shape the development of education policy and to maintain and set the professional standards for teaching. We do this through regular consultation with teachers via our national programme of teacher meetings, online community discussion forums, written communication with individual teachers, visiting schools and working with other education organisations, associations and unions.

Identifying and Grooming the Pioneers
http://staffdevelop.org/cadre.html
The better the job we do of identifying, grooming and rewarding local talent, the greater the professional growth and development we will see. It is a simple [but usually ignored] truth. We are too often penny wise and people foolish.
Change takes root when grown from local seeds planted by those who know the soil, the sky and the prevailing winds. Programs and strategies grown elsewhere usually flounder and founder.
