Getting started

What are the different components of these materials? These materials are organised into sections that address the questions below.  It isn't necessary to work through these sections and activities in a particular order.  You may prefer to start with the information from existing research about CPD or with activities.  But we hope each component will prove useful and encourage you to draw on ideas. We have referred in the pack to both staff development and Continuing Professional Development (CPD).  We recognise that staff development is a well established label. However, because research shows that for staff development to have an impact on teaching and learning it needs to be sustained over time, we find the term Continuing Professional Development, or CPD, to be most helpful.
