TEP Talks: Changing Teachers' Habits with Evidence-informed CPD

Event Date: 23 March 2021

The 6th in our series of TEP Talks with Tom Sherrington - education consultant and author.


Ofsted identified instructional leadership as a key driver in effective schools. Essential to instructional leadership is quality professional development. Tom’s latest Book ‘Teaching Walkthrus' grew out of the realisation that most teachers are looking to develop their practice, harnessing ideas from cognitive science and other research.

This webinar will support leaders to answer the following questions and support with designing finely tuned professional learning systems and content:

  • Why can it be difficult for teachers to improve?
  • What are good bets for them to work on?
  • How can leaders manage professional learning and accountability procedures to maximise teacher development?
