The challenging environment in which your school operates requires teachers to become learning individuals, in learning teams, within learning organisations. Are you ready to meet this challenge?

This book suggest practical strategies for professional development within your school. Using case studies and the experience of leading practitioners, Leadership and Professional Development in Schools helps you to:

  • identify and diagnose your staff's needs
  • design your school-based programme
  • implement techniques and activities for successful staff development
  • review the outcomes for continuing development.

This handbook will help all head teachers, deputy head teachers, staff development co-ordinators, and educational professionals develop a long term strategic plan for your school.
