CPD Excellence Hubs Programme (TLIF)The most disadvantaged children need access to the best-supported teachers and effective professional development which not only helps teachers to thrive, but all pupils to succeed. In a new nationwide project funded by the Teaching and Leadership Innovation Fund (TLIF), the Teacher Development Trust has identified five CPD Excellence Hubs that will each use a rigorously evidence-based approach to transform teacher development in some of the most challenged schools and areas in England. Rather than simply deliver training to leaders and teachers, we are taking an innovative approach to change the way that schools design, commission and implement CPD. The CPD Excellence Hubs Programme will be funded by the Department for Education (DfE) through their Teaching and Leadership Innovation Fund and will provide school-based ‘Expert Advisors’ to intensively support local schools in five priority areas across England.
- Sheffield & Doncaster
- South Central
- personalised guidance with CPD planning and evaluation;
- fortnightly coaching conversations; and
- half-termly attendance at local forums to share best practice around pre-identified CPD needs.
