Excellent CPD Opportunities

MPCT believes in the DfES philosophy that effective teachers should take ownership and give a high priority to professional development (DfES, 2000). Continuous Professional Development is the on going training and education throughout a career to improve the skills and knowledge used to perform a job or succession of jobs. CPD at MPCT is a planned, structured process, involving the assessment of development needs and the tailoring of training to meet those needs. MPCT's CPD policy is founded on the belief that the development of staff should not finish after initial qualification and/or training, especially in a fast changing environment in which skills are likely to obsolesce quickly. CPD requires commitment and resources from both the employee and the employer. MPCT's policy also provides staff members with a framework of individual progression within MPCT.
