Continued Professional Development (CPD)
“Every teacher needs to improve, not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better.” Dylan Wiliam
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a fundamental part of life in schools, contributing to professional and personal development across all staff teams. It is essential for successful schools to be able to access high quality CPD, enabling professional knowledge and skills to be developed and enhanced.
At the NELTSH, we offer a ‘golden thread’ of professional training and development as set out by the Department of Education (DfE). CPD forms part of this ‘golden thread’ and will be offered to all schools within the NELTSH catchment. We aim to provide CPD which will reflect local need to ensure the very best outcomes for our schools in Haringey, Redbridge and Waltham Forest.
2021-22 CPD offer
We currently have two CPD courses which will be taking place during 2021-22. They are as follows:
- SEND which will be facilitated by our partners at ‘Whitefield Academy Trust’ in Waltham Forest

Primary Maths SKTM for ECTs
This project is designed to support primary early career teachers (teachers in their first two years of teaching) in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.
Participants will work deeply on one area of maths, drawing in the associated pedagogy, and activities will include lesson analysis and lesson design.
ECTs will learn how to plan and teach a carefully sequenced and coherent area of maths; appreciate the key ideas underpinning the area of maths being taught; understand key principles and approaches associated with teaching for mastery; understand approaches to assess pupils’ prior learning, so that learning sequences take this into account; make appropriate use of representations to expose the structure of the maths being taught.
Secondary Maths SKTM for ECTs
This project is designed to support secondary early career teachers (teachers in their first two years of teaching) in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.
ECTS will work on designing effective learning and teaching in maths for: structure of the number system, operating on numbers, multiplicative reasoning, sequences and graphs, statistics and probability and geometry.
Latest resources and documents such as the new government (non-statutory) guidance and the Year 7 Checkpoints resources will be used to address gaps in learning from the last two years.
