The latest edition of The SecEd Podcast offers practical advice and tips on overcoming the barriers to effective CPD, what an excellent CPD programme looks like, whole-school leadership of CPD, evaluation, support staff and more

This SecEd Podcast offers a range of practical, research-based advice on what an effective CPD programme in schools might look like and how we can evaluate our CPD to ensure it is effective and has impact for our students' outcomes and whole-school priorities.

We also consider support staff, subject-specific CPD vs pedagogy-led CPD, and teacher autonomy when it comes to leading their own CPD.

SecEd editor Pete Henshaw speaks with Maria Cunningham, head of education at the Teacher Development Trust, a national charity supporting evidence-led CPD practice in schools.

Maria is a former teacher and participant of the Teach First leadership development programme. She has been with the TDT since 2016 and is a prolific contributor to SecEd. She is also acting as secretariat for the Department for Education’s CPD Expert Group.
