We are delighted to be a Chartered Status CPD Partner of the Chartered College of Teaching. This partnership provides a fantastic new pathway for individuals to progress from our flagship TDT Associate Qualification in CPD Leadership and gain recognition towards Chartered Status

Teachers and/or school leaders who have achieved the Teacher Development Trust’s Associate Qualification in CPD Leadership can gain Recognition of Prior Certified Learning (RPCL). This will give 20 credits towards towards Chartered Status and exemption from the Development of Teaching Practice Award (Leadership) on the Chartered Teacher (Leadership) pathway.

We are really pleased to be strengthening our partnership with the Teacher Development Trust, who have a stellar track record in providing high-quality, evidence-informed CPD to schools and colleges. This new phase of partnership provides recognition for those already leading on CPD in their settings, in the form of credits towards Chartered Status.
