Free CPD programme for English and maths practitioners - Practice Development Groups

AoC are inviting participants to benefit from a free English and maths CPD programme called the Practice Development Groups (PDG) programme. The PDG programme is a national programme funded by ETF, with regional activity in London and the South West being delivered by AoC.

The PDG programme aims to encourage practitioner led CPD through action learning sets. Practitioners will work together to improve an aspect of teaching, learning and assessment to enhance their teaching of English or embedding of English and maths into other programmes of study, over a four-month period. Practitioners are welcome to focus on a topic of their choice. Examples of current focuses include, blended learning, student engagement, using digital technology in teaching English and maths and the impact of language in maths. 

The programme is free to take part in. There is funding to support those who join as a group facilitator. For more information about the programme and how to take part, please visit the AoC PDG website or email
