IHCPD Scheme As an alternative route to courses phase two will add further options for teachers to implement. This will be discussed at the TTSG in January 2009 and launched thereafter
Aims of the scheme The International House Professional Development Certificate (IHCPD) is designed to help IH teachers give focus to their continued professional development. The scheme is divided into four levels that reflect the range of experiences within the IH network and it is hoped that each level can be attained by any teacher no matter what language they teach. The levels are independent of each other meaning that a teacher can join the scheme at any point and in line with the nature of continued professional development, there is no time limit to the award. A certificate is awarded on successful completion of each level. The scheme is not an individual course in its own right.
1.4 The levels Level One – The Developing teacher To achieve this level, a teacher should have done Number 6 and four of the other things and be able to show proof of them in their teaching portfolio: 1. Take an active part in teacher development by: - Completing 6 hours of peer observations validated by the DoS and - Attending and participating in 6 teacher development workshops. 2. Reading and research - Have read an EFL related book and produced a review of it for colleagues. - Submit the review for publication on IH teachers.com or other IH website. 3. Produce a piece material - Produced a piece of material for classroom use and shared it on the IH Platform. This material should include both what the students need for the task and also detailed teacher materials and notes. Examples can be found on the ihworld website and ihplatform. 4. Teach at least three different levels of learner - Include a report in the portfolio showing the levels taught and outlining the experiences of teaching those levels. 5. Kept a reflective journal for one academic year. This can be kept using an electronic journal or blog. 6. Stage 2 Action Plan - Produce a 500-word action plan stating their strengths and weaknesses as a teacher and laying out an action plan as they move towards other levels.
