About us: The importance of high quality teacher development
We know that teachers are committed to developing their career through building their knowledge and understanding of both their own practice and the educational landscape.
We know that schools benefit from teachers who are regularly engaged with meaningful and thought-provoking development and professional learning.
Schools that provide regular, high quality and relevant development and professional learning retain staff more effectively than schools that do not.
Teachers who have the opportunity to engage in development and professional learning perform better, maintain enthusiasm and motivation and are less likely to leave their school or, indeed, the profession.
We are aware that school budgets are tight and spending large sums of money for one-day stand alone courses, that have little or no impact on either the individual or the whole school community, is no longer feasible.
