Professional development

  • Countries are investing significantly in teachers’ professional development

    • but there appear to be real issues about matching demand and supply, cost and benefit.

  • There is a lack of suitable development activities on offer to satisfy teachers’ demand

    • it is notable that those teachers who take part in more days of development are more likely to have to contribute towards the cost themselves

Learning from appraisal and feedback

Some teachers are left aloneTeachers who received no appraisal or feedback in their schools
