This workshop addresses the gulf between teaching practice as part of a pre-service course and the reality of teaching a full timetable and additional administrative tasks.

What is CPD? How can we create a culture of development in your school – this talk will look at how to establish a culture of CPD in your school, how to support your teachers’ learning goals and how to tailor the CPD programme to your teachers’ needs.

In this session Fiona Dunlop explores ways of identifying what motivates the teachers you manage and how to encourage them to take ownership of their CPD in a way that will benefit not only the teacher but the organisation too. The session covers areas such as developmental observation techniques and focussed action research for teachers.

This publication will interest and stimulate anyone who is involved in planning and providing education and training for teachers of English before they take up their positions in educational institutions. It brings together, in fourteen papers, a wealth of innovative, practical experiences and ideas from differing contexts across the world. We hope that it will provide a catalyst for new discussions and approaches in pre-service education, for the benefit of future teachers and their learners.
