What is your advice about? CPD

  1. Keep a folder of notes from any CPD, INSET or training you attend. Include a summary of reflections and action points.
  2. Make notes in the diary at 2 weeks, 2 months and 2 terms to revisit the ideas and check your progress.
  3. If you are given advice on ‘best practice’ then ask for the evidence base, where possible, and try and find alternative viewpoints before coming to a conclusion.
  4. Before making a change in your practice, identify the difference you want to see in pupils (or colleagues) and where you can get follow-up advice.
  5. After training, seek ways to objectively check if your learning has genuinely and objectively had an impact on pupils or if you’ve merely done something enjoyable/novel.
