About the series

Bloomsbury CPD Library enables schools to run effective CPD sessions in house, saving money and unifying staff behind a common improvement goal. Divided into two unique sections, Teach Yourself and Train Others, the books offer individual teachers and middle leaders the chance to ensure their own practice is in tip-top form and then to lead CPD training programmes for colleagues. The books provide a set of ready-to-use training plans, accompanied by PowerPoint slides and worksheets available to download online for free. On average, each book offers 20 hours of CPD, equating to a cost of just £1.15 per hour of training!
