A Symposium on Professionalism and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) for Educators

This 90-minute symposium is suitable for teachers, coordinators, department heads, headteachers and school leaders. It focuses on the benefits of Professionalism and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) in education and acts as a pre-cursor to our longer professional development programme on the same topic. It contributes towards the 50 hours of CPD requirement for the teachers as per the NEP 2020.

The overriding purpose of CPD is to create an environment where continuous improvement and high-quality teaching is the norm. CPD should also address development needs, maximise strengths and enable all teachers to meet the challenge of modern teaching.

The symposium aims to address questions such as:

  • Points
    What is the link between professionalism and CPD?
  • Points
    Why is CPD central to teaching and learning?
  • Points
    What are the building blocks of effective CPD?
  • Points
    What are the best practices for sourcing, assessing and enabling high-quality, career-long professional development?
