The Professional Development Leader Programme is our flagship approach to recruiting and developing Professional Development Leaders for a teacher and school-led national CPD programme.
Stage two builds on the skills developed through stage one and will help you move from delivery of effective professional development to leading and developing CPD to meet the needs of individual schools. You will learn how to use and embed pedagogical content knowledge and how to plan and develop effective strategies through the consultancy cycle.
This course is for those who have gained accreditation as Associate Professional Development Leader and who have already gained experience of local CPD facilitation.

Who is the course leader?

  • Carmine De Grandis

On completion of both modules, you will be able to:
  • Use data to plan and develop an action plan for support
  • Use the consultancy cycle to set, support and exit consultancy work
  • Adapt CPD to meet the specific needs of a group
  • Use educational news and research to inform support
