For all teachers and support staff in London - Innovation in Newham
Best Practice Network is providing Professional Development for all teachers and support staff in Newham and nearby LAs. A specific website has been set up to inform participants.
Newham PD online is the place to find out about professional learning and development opportunities tailored to your needs. Run by the Institute of Education and Best Practice Network, it features high quality professional development designed to make a difference to outcomes for young people, practitioners and leaders in the organisations in Newham within which you work.
As the preferred provider of CPD for Newham schools for 2012-15, we have worked with the CPD steering group, representing headteachers and senior leaders from secondary, primary, and early year’s settings to shape the programme. The site and its content will continue to evolve and change in response to your PD needs and feedback.
Key principles underpinning the programme include providing opportunities for participants to:
develop skills, knowledge and understanding that is practical, relevant and applicable to their current role or career aspirations
apply their learning and develop their practise to improve outcomes for pupils
engage in research and further study through our accredited programmes
The programme builds on existing good practice in Newham schools and develops innovative, evidence based approaches to professional development that makes a difference.
