Best Practice

Leading a CPD session

It is common for teachers to be asked to lead CPD workshops with colleagues. Sarah Coskeran advises on how you can prepare, deliver and follow-up your CPD to ensure it is effective.

As part of the movement towards teacher-led, collaborative professional development, more and more teachers have the opportunity to lead CPD sessions for colleagues. Leading a CPD session will allow you to share the knowledge and expertise you use every day to support particular learning needs in your classroom. 

Whether you have been asked to lead a session in your own school, a different school, or at a third party event, you will need to ensure your training is focused, relevant and likely to have a positive impact on your audience. Here, we give our advice on the steps you should take before, during and after your session to make sure this is the case.
