Continuing professional development of teachers

Ofsted visited a sample of schools to evaluate the management and effect of teachers’ continuing professional development activities. The focus was on activities within the scope of the School Improvement Grant of the Standards Fund, particularly the self-improvement element that enables schools to put in place improvement programmes in line with their own development plans.

Inspection of the Key Stage 2 training element of Key Stage 2/3 courses: 2002-04

In 1996, the Department for Education and Employment outlined requirements for teacher training courses for the 7-14 age range. By 1998, 20 providers were running Key Stage 2/3 courses. From 1998 to 2002, all courses of initial teacher training were required to meet DfES criteria. Ofsted has inspected the generic Key Stage 2 training of 16 providers offering Key Stage 2/3 courses separately from the specialist subject training at Key Stage 3.

Teachers' early professional development

Ofsted visited a sample of schools to evaluate the quality and effectiveness of the professional development activities undertaken by teachers in their second or third years of teaching. The majority of teachers interviewed were in their second year of teaching and therefore at the beginning of the period that has come to be called early professional development (EPD). None were involved in the EPD pilot projects.
