Continuing professional development handbook for managers
'Going forward: Managing the Continuing Professional Development of English Language Teachers in the UK' provides information and guidance on how to develop a culture and system of continuing professional development in your learning centre. It uses a CPD framework that helps teachers to identify the stage of career they are currently at and to plan their development relevant to their needs.
The information in the handbook is based on the principle that the effective teacher is the developing teacher: it is never possible to stand still in your work as an English language teacher. Continuing Professional Development is a process that helps teachers and managers meet the challenges of their work and achieve their goals, as well as those of their learning centre. It incorporates the idea of ‘reflective practice’ – the importance of reflecting upon what you are doing as an essential part of the development process.
There is also a companion handbook for teachers available to download below.
