Continuous Professional Development
Good schools and effective commercial organisations have long recognised that developingpeople is one of the main levers for achieving success
Schools Audit Commission
As we head further into the 21st century and all schools and academies come to terms with the ever changing face of the workforce, leadership and management of professional development is at the very top of the AET’s agenda. We firmly believe that personal and professional growth are key factors in staff’s perception of their worth to an organisation and consequently in how much additional effort they are prepared to put into that organisation.
The aim, therefore, of the team leading CPD across the AET is to facilitate the design, co-ordination and monitoring of coherent and effective development activities and training programmes that address the challenges and barriers facing each academy and embed training and development as the central component of workforce development and school improvement.
Our vision for our academies is to develop a learning-centred culture with the entire school workforce, including both teachers and educational support staff, giving the same attention to the design, delivery and monitoring of their professional development as is given to the teaching and learning of students. Indeed, for our academies to continue toimprove, teachers and other adults need to feel that their learning and development is just as important as the students’.
