International Teacher CPD Report

The Chartered College of Teaching has launched a wide-reaching new report looking at global CPD trends

– Chartered College of Teaching launches ‘Teacher CPD: International trends, opportunities and challenges’
– The report pulls together over 30 articles by high-profile experts from across education comparing CPD across the world
– Part of the Chartered College’s work to build a culture where career-long learning is an expectation.

The landmark project, published by the professional body for teachers, brings together over 30 different articles by some of the world’s leading researchers and practitioners showcasing trends, opportunities and challenges in developing professional learning for teachers.

Research has found that carefully designed professional development opportunities with a focus on pupil outcomes have a significant impact on student achievement.‘Teacher CPD: International trends, opportunities and challenges’ will support discussions to ensure that every teacher is able to access high-quality and impactful professional development benefiting them, their pupils and wider society. It follows the Chartered College’s work to embed career-long professional learning at the heart of teaching and to foster greater collaboration.

Across six sections, the free report also looks at the challenges of accessing CPD – including subject-specific professional development – along with ongoing time and cost barriers. It also reflects on what works and how innovative approaches, such as the use of technology, can potentially widen access.

Cat Scutt, Director of Education and Research at the Chartered College of Teaching, said: “At the Chartered College of Teaching, we recognise the importance of high-quality professional learning in supporting teachers’ development and professional satisfaction. This publication aims to bring together the latest thinking around teacher CPD, providing insight for teachers, school leaders, and providers of professional learning around the world.”
