Ensure quality professional development!

Quality training and continuous professional development (CPD) are essential to making teaching an attractive profession. They should be free of charge and offered during working hours. Education staff need to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to effectively teach and engage with students in diverse learning environments, and for this, need to be educated to masters’ level. By investing in quality training and continuous professional development, teachers can enhance their pedagogical skills, develop innovative teaching practices, and improve their subject knowledge. This not only benefits teachers but also students, as they receive a higher quality of education, leading to improved academic performance and overall success.

Continuous professional development also helps teaching professionals keep pace with the ever-evolving education landscape, including new technologies, curriculum changes, and emerging teaching methodologies. This ensures that teachers, trainers, academics and other education professionals are always up-to-date and able to provide high-quality education to their students. Additionally, quality training and continuous professional development opportunities provide them with a sense of professional growth and fulfilment, leading to increased job satisfaction and a sense of pride in their profession.
