CPD Resource

Continued Professional Development (CPD) is crucial for teachers to complete to keep up to date with industry development and to continually improve the quality of their teaching. CPD recourses range from traditional teacher training days to e-learning and blended training which incorporates a mix of in person and online tasks.

Modern pedagogy is continually evolving, CPD gives teachers the opportunity to learn new teaching techniques and keep up with those who have just finished training. With the digital transformations that schools are currently undergoing, CPD provides teachers with a good opportunity to keep up to date with the latest technology developments and learn how these can be implemented in everyday lessons.

As with learning any new skills, learning new methods of teaching increases a teacher’s motivation, commitment and confidence in the classroom. Learning new skills and applying them in the classroom can lead to a more stimulating and effective teaching environment.

Videos are a key platform for delivering CPDs and are the most beneficial platform for submitting real life CPD evidence of teaching a class of students. Videos can be played back during CPD sessions to be reviewed by peers and mentors.

Video equipment such as the Swivl robot and video observation software allows teachers to record live lessons for mentors to review and provide meaningful feedback on. It meets guidelines set out by Ofsted and the Department of Education for CPD learning.

Swivl provides a solution for blended CPD learning. Observers no longer need to be physically present to observe a teacher’s capabilities. Teachers may also prefer this as they can teach their lessons more naturally and as they would normally.

With Swivl technology teachers can record, edit, analyse, reflect and share video content to colleagues, moderators, peers and mentors.
