Helping Staff Develop in Schools
With the current emphasis on Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for teachers, it is important to ensure that every member of staff has the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding as outlined in the professional and occupational standards for the school workforce.
As your practical guide to developing your staff, this book shares successful ideas from other schools, colleges and local authorities. Topics covered include:
- developing a learning-centred culture
- finding time for staff development
- meeting the different needs of staff
- how to evaluate the impact of staff development
With vignettes and case studies and its emphasis on practical and research-based perspectives, this book offers tried and tested strategies for successful and rewarding staff development that, most importantly, can contribute to improving pupil outcomes.
Especially relevant to those responsible for leading and managing staff development in schools, colleges and at local authority level, this book is also useful for anyone working towards higher degrees in Education Leadership and Management, Mentoring-Coaching and the new qualifications for leaders of CPD and the Masters in Teaching and Learning (MTL).
