Continuous Professional Development (CPD)


We know that our most valuable asset is our dynamic staff team and that’s why we are committed to investing in high quality professional development for everyone, whatever their role within school. Our CPD programme is called ‘Journey to Excellence’ and is underpinned by 4 key principles:


  • Trust: to identify areas for development in a mutually supportive environment which promotes collaboration, innovation and a degree of risk-taking

  • Empowerment: to take control of leading their own development within specific areas of practice; using the PMR and distinct monitoring processes

  • Integrity: by identifying development and supporting staff through collaboration and receptiveness

  • Access: the added value of drawing upon the experience and expertise of a range of well trained staff


Professional development is a journey and while the destination is to improve the quality of teaching practice; the road can take many twists and turns. Djanogly Learning Trust will build signposts to steer colleagues in their right direction. Our aim is to develop each individual and each signpost will help:


  1. To strengthen and deepen the quality of a structured professional development, linking to performance targets

  2. To share expertise through knowledgeable discussion: confidently identifying and supporting an individual professional journey

  3. To create a culture of support, challenge and reflection in order that individuals can ‘be the best that they can be’ and develop an ethos of career aspiration

  4. To encourage creativity and innovation in order to enhance skills which ultimately maximise pupil progress.


It is the Trusts responsibility to ensure that all staff have access to high quality continued professional development appropriate to their role. Identifying needs and opportunities is a shared responsibility between the individual member of staff and senior colleagues. It is every individual member of staff’s responsibility to maximise these opportunities and reflect on their own professional practice in order to improve outcomes for our children.



We are an active partner in Transform Teaching School Alliance. Our staff have opportunities to network, take part in professional development programmes and act as facilitators on programmes themselves.
