Theories on CPD in practice


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

I'm a level 3 practitioner and for a course I'm required to find out other practitioners opinions and theories on CPD and how it all actually works in practice for you all. I personally think that CPD is one of the most vital things you can do as a practitioner and in the ever changing world of early education it is important that we keep our skill base up, especially to prove those 'it's not a real teacher job' people!

However I'd like to hear all of your thoughts on how you think CPD is beneficial to you and your staff and practice, and especially if there are any cons to it (like needing time of work, financial costs, time consuming, becoming outdated etc)


thank you in advance! :)

Hi Moomin96 and welcome to the Forum! 

I can't comment on how things are looking for everyone in settings currently as I'm not working in a setting these days. But I thought I'd just point you in the direction of a couple of things we have on the FSF from Jenny Barber who works in CPD. If you like articles to read, then she has written one about providing CPD in our very different looking world. Or if you prefer to listen to things, she has recorded a podcast with Ben and Jack from our education team. 

Hope you find these useful. 😊
