    Preface

    This book has been written for those who lead and manage continuing professional development (CPD). Continuing professional development co-ordinators hold a key role and one that needs to be developed further in many schools and colleges. We hope that this book helps people think more deeply about the professional development and training of staff – all staff – in schools and other organizations. We hope, too, that it will lead to even better practice.

    The last decade or so has seen a growing recognition, in schools and colleges, that people matter and that attention must be given to their needs, especially those concerning their professional and personal development and growth. This is perhaps best epitomized by the government's emphasis on lifelong learning and the introduction in 2001 of a strategy for continuing professional development. In 2004, the (then) Teacher Training Agency (TTA) was asked to expand its remit and to bring its expertise to bear in three new areas: (a) to improve the training and development of the wider workforce in schools; (b) to provide more co-ordinated and coherent support for the continuing professional development of teachers and support staff; and, (c) to link all its work to the emerging children's agenda. With the increase in mentoring and coaching, devolved funding to schools and professional standards that recognize the contribution of teachers to the learning of their colleagues, the school's role in leading and supporting staff learning is more crucial than ever before with remodelling as a vital tool to help schools adopt creative, innovative solutions to enhance their capacity to develop as learning-centred communities. Alongside this recognition of the importance of people there has been a growing awareness that schools do not always manage their staff – their human resources – as well as perhaps they might. The quality and quantity of professional development that individuals experience is hugely variable, largely depending on what school they are in.

    We hope that this book will help improve human resource development and its management and leadership so that more people get a better deal and that CPD is given the attention it merits.

    In writing this book we have tried to do two things. First, we have summarized the most recent relevant research – some of which we have been personally involved in – to highlight the issues and current state of affairs. This gives a firm foundation for CPD co-ordinators leading and managing professional development. Secondly, we have given examples and case studies of good practice drawn from a wide range of schools.

    The book is made up of two parts. After an introductory chapter which examines the notion of continuing professional development, locating it within the wider context of human resource development, Part I is entitled ‘Professional development for school improvement’. We argue that individual professional development is crucially important and that the professional growth and learning of staff is crucial to school improvement. How adults and schools learn is the focus of Chapter 2, which also examines the notion of the learning-centred community and effective professional development. It is important to remember that development cannot be forced and that teachers and other staff who are excited and motivated by the experience of their own learning are likely to communicate that excitement to the pupils.

    What we know about effective leadership and management of CPD is the theme of Chapter 3 where the training and development cycle is introduced. This cycle – of needs identification, meeting the training and development needs of staff, and monitoring and evaluating the impact of CPD (what Ofsted has termed ‘the logical chain’) – forms the substance of the next three chapters, whilst the final chapter of Part I, written by Graham Handscomb, examines the importance of collaborative enquiry, the sharing of practice and the growth of the self-researching or the ‘research-engaged’ school. In all of these chapters, indeed throughout the book, we draw upon latest research and examples of good practice, where possible giving case studies and pen portraits.

    Part II of the book – ‘Leading and managing the CPD of specific groups’ – examines the implications of the training and development cycle for those who work in schools. We look at specific groups or categories in schools – support staff, newly qualified teachers (NQTs), teachers in the first five years, supply teachers, middle managers, school leaders and governors. The issues around their roles and development needs are considered and we suggest ways in which they might be met.

    Although our focus is predominantly on schools we argue throughout the book that for CPD to be effective it has to be well led and managed at three levels, that of the school, the local authority and at a national level. The key goal of all educational organizations is pupil learning, whereas the on-going learning of teachers, support staff and other employees is not always prioritized or adequately resourced. Creating a culture of learning is crucial and this is shaped essentially by the attitude and approach of school leaders and governors towards CPD. There is a need to ensure that individual or personal development is not marginalized as it is crucial to teacher effectiveness and thus to the success of the school. Schools need to achieve a healthy complementarity or interrelationship between system and individual needs – something that has been absent over the past two decades. The balance needs to be right.

    We hope those in schools who are responsible for leading and managing CPD will find the book helpful. For if one of the keys to effective CPD is to ensure it is effectively led and managed, then the role of CPD co-ordinators needs to be given the kudos and time it requires to be done well. The book has been written with this in mind.

    About the Authors

    Sara Bubb is an experienced London teacher who helps staff in schools develop. She does this in many ways: through leading professional development, assessing, developing schemes, researching and writing.

    With a national and international reputation in the induction of new teachers and professional development, Sara speaks at conferences and runs courses throughout the country and abroad (e.g. Norway, Taiwan) on topics such as helping staff develop, observation skills, induction, developing pedagogical skills, leading CPD, subject leadership, monitoring teaching and implementing performance management. She has featured on and been a consultant for eight Teachers TV programmes. She trains a broad range of people, including inspectors, assessors, advisers, consultants, Fasttrack, TeachFirst and advanced skills teachers.

    Sara assesses advanced skills, excellent, overseas trained and graduate teachers and higher level teaching assistants and was an external assessor for Threshold. She has inspected over 25 primary schools.

    As a senior lecturer at the Institue of Education (0.2) she works on PGCE and Masters programmes and set up the employment based routes (OTT and GTP) to QTS. She is lead director of the CfBT Educational Trust-funded Sef2Si – ‘From Self Evaluation to School Improvement: the role of effective professional development’ project. She co-directed the DfES-funded national research Project on the Effectiveness of the Induction Year, was deputy director of the TTA systematic review of induction research and helped the Northern Ireland GTC revise their teacher competences.

    On a 0.2 secondment to the (then) DfES London Challenge team, Sara is the consultant for Chartered London Teacher status – a scheme involving over 38,600 teachers. She is the London Gifted and Talented Early Years network leader, working with staff in reception and nursery classes to enhance their provision for all children, especially the most able.

    She has written books and numerous articles on induction, professional development, workload, and performance management. She is the new teacher expert at the Times Educational Supplement, and writes articles, a weekly advice column and answers questions on its website.

    Professor Peter Earley is Head of Education Leadership and Management Programmes at the London Centre for Leadership in Learning at the Institute of Education, University of London. A central research interest is leadership and he has recently completed a series of studies of school leaders. Other research interests include school governing bodies, school inspection, self-evaluation and professional development. He is currently co-ordinating projects entitled ‘From Self Evaluation to School Improvement: the role of effective professional development’ and ‘Future Leaders: an evaluation of a pilot project’.

    In addition he co-edits the practitioner journal Professional Development Today. He was the course leader for the Institute's Educational Leadership and Management MA and currently is co-ordinating the EdD specialist module on ‘Leadership and Learning in Educational Organisations’. He was until recently a school governor and a member of the executive of the National Association of School Governors.

    He has published widely and his previous books for PCP/Sage include, Understanding School Leadership (2004) (with Dick Weindling), Managing Teacher Workload: Work-life balance and wellbeing (2004) (with Sara Bubb), and Improving Schools and Inspection: The Self-inspecting School (2000) (with Neil Ferguson). He has also written, Improving Schools and Governing Bodies (1999) (with Michael Creese), Routledge and Leadership and Management in Education: Cultures, Change and Context (2005) (with Marianne Coleman), Oxford University Press.
