Maintaining Your Licence to Practise

144 pages | Learning Matters
The DfES reforms for teachers in the Lifelong Learning Sector have led to the introduction of a Licence to Practise for all practitioners from 2007. From that time, all teachers and trainers have needed to provide evidence of a minimum of 30-35 hours of CPD per annum, together with reflection on the likely impact of these developments on their practice. This text provides practitioners and staff-developers with a wide range of CPD activities and simple reflective models, which capitalise on existing skills and knowledge while encouraging active and meaningful professional reflection and growth.
