We need to do more to recognise and facilitate growth and career development

David Weston is the founder and Chief Executive of the Teacher Development Trust.

CPD isn’t a luxury add-on to the work of teaching, it is an absolutely central element of being a professional.

The evidence on professional learning is clear: powerful forms of training and development help children to succeed and teachers to thrive. The young people that stand to gain the most are those we try hardest to reach. By improving our ability to diagnose and support learning needs we are able to help the children with more complex needs as well as those who receive less support outside school.

We need to do more to recognise and facilitate growth and career development.
