The latest publication in the HMIE Learning Together series was released yesterday. What is this document about?
Its focus is upon continuing professional development (CPD), collegiality and the role of chartered teachers in schools. It draws upon knowledge of practice gained from 2007 to 2009, including evidence from our inspection programme, and the findings of research. We visited schools in every education authority and had discussions with staff. We reviewed the practices and processes being developed in schools and authorities and identified examples of emerging and innovative practice. Most importantly we sought evidence for the impact of these processes on the outcomes for learners.
