The best schools use professional development to help drive improvement

The best schools are excellent at developing their staff and are highly effective in using continuing professional development as a way to help bring about improved standards at their school, according to a report published today by Ofsted.

The report Good professional development in schools sets out the progress schools are making with regards to the ongoing training of teachers and other staff. Inspectors visited two nursery schools, 13 primary schools, 24 secondary schools and one special school, where previous inspections had indicated that practice in professional development was good or outstanding.
