Professional Growth

Engaging in P&D

conversation wheelPerformance and development is about creating a culture of teacher quality, feedback and growth for all teachers within all schools.

Nationally and internationally, there is unequivocal evidence that the quality of teaching is the most significant in-school factor affecting student outcomes. There is also strong evidence that better appraisal and feedback leading to targeted development can improve teacher performance.

The Performance and Development culture/cycle resources support each component of the performance and development cycle. They are designed to help you to engage with the performance and development opportunities at your school. You may use all of them or you may choose to only select relevant resources as needed.
