Are you planning next year’s CPD programme for your school/s? Maria Cunningham suggests five things the evidence says you should leave out

March and April tends to be the time when trusts and schools start to gear up their process of planning ahead for the next academic year. What will look different for your school in 2020/21? What new objectives or goals are you aspiring to? What development priorities have been achieved, and which might need more time to embed?

At the Teacher Development Trust (TDT), we work closely with leaders to design and refine their whole-school CPD programmes, as well as to consider the careful change management processes required to secure effective implementation.

In the very best examples, CPD planning goes hand-in-hand with revisiting other processes across the organisation including performance management, systems for reviewing quality of teaching and learning, or timetabling.
