Challenge of CfE and CPD for Supply Teachers

Calling all Supply Teachers!

If you haven’t already done so, please join CPDStepin, the online community for supply teachers and other underemployed colleagues who face additional challenges in accessing CPD?

This professional community is on Glow and provides a wide range of support for CPD and PRD just for you. Don’t forget that LTScotland will provide a Glow username and password for you if needed. (Note this offer is open only to supply and underemployed teachers who can’t access Glow through the usual channels).
See this blog post for more details

If you are in the Edinburgh area, why not come to a practical session in Broughton High School on 26th January at 4.30 pm. We are particularly pleased that the Cabinet Secretary, Mike Russell, has kindly agreed to lead a discussion as part of the session.  The theme for the discussion is “The challenge of keeping your skills up-to-date for CfE when not fully employed”. See this CPDFind opportunity for more details,

Even if you can’t attend in person, you can take part in the discussion through CPDMeet. See this CPDFind opportunity for more details,

We hope to see you on CPDStepin
