As the first half term of the academic year draws to a close, many teachers are beginning to review their practice. Ongoing training can be a vital tool in improving teaching standards, which is why many teachers consider Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
However, it shouldn’t just be teachers considering CPD. As well as traditional school education, further education and higher education are also key components of the industry, with the entire education sector responsible for teaching skills, values and knowledge to people of all ages. This makes attending accredited CPD events a vital form of training for professionals across the industry.
For more information from CPD News Team, please visit their CPD Directory page. Alternatively please visit the CPD Industry Hubs for more CPD articles, courses and events relevant to your Continuing Professional Development requirements.
