Headteacher Update Podcast: High-impact CPD in schools

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

This episode considers best practice for effective CPD programmes and practice in schools, offering practical ideas, examples and advice. We also discuss effective performance management processes.

Our expert panel reflect on their general tenets of good CPD, before discussing what an effective CPD programme or cycle looks like and giving examples from their respective schools.

Other themes include teachers leading their own CPD, research-driven CPD, how to ensure CPD is focused on pupil outcomes, getting buy-in from staff, evaluating the impact, including support staff, and more.

We also consider professional, collegiate performance management and performance-related pay processes.
