CPD Excellence Hubs Programme
The most disadvantaged children need access to the best-supported teachers and effective professional development which not only helps teachers to thrive, but all pupils to succeed.
The Teacher Development Trust, the national charity for professional learning is launching a new project in Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire to support schools in developing the most effective CPD.
Britannia Teaching School Alliance will be a CPD Excellence Hub and, with TDT, will be working closely with around ten schools to develop the best practice around CPD processes and structures. These schools will have bespoke coaching, a review of current practices and support from January 2018 to May 2020. Each school will receive some funding to support engagement in the process.
John Collier, Director of Teaching and Learning for BTSA, will be acting as an Expert Adviser. John has extensive experience in designing and delivering professional development to teachers and school leaders. He believes it will have a huge impact in Stoke and beyond, “I am delighted to be asked to carry out this role locally. BTSA will be one of only five hubs across the whole country. This means that schools in our area will be supported in taking an innovative approach to change the way they design, commission and implement CPD.”
BTSA will also be arranging local CPD forums and supporting the development of best practice in CPD across Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire. Do email firstname.lastname@example.org, view our Handbook or visit our website for more information – http://tdtrust.org/cpd-excellence-hubs
