Charlaine SimpsonCharlaine Simpson, Senior Education Officer

Professional learning is an essential part of Professional Update.

Teachers engage in professional learning to stimulate their thinking and professional knowledge and to ensure that their practice is critically informed and up-to-date.

We believe that by undertaking a wide range of high-quality, sustained professional learning experiences, teachers are more likely to inspire pupils and provide high-quality teaching and learning experiences, enabling learners to achieve their best.

It is important that professional learning provides rich opportunities for teachers to develop and enhance their professional knowledge and practice, in order to progress the quality of learning and teaching and school improvement.
