Managing Professional Development in Schools Summary


Managing Professional Development in Schools by Sonia Blandford

The importance of professional development for teachers cannot be overstated. In recent years there has been much debate on how to raise standards in schools and it is now recognised by theorists, policy-makers and practitioners that the professional development of teachers is an important factor in this context.
For professional development co-ordinators and senior management, knowledge and understanding of the nature of professional development roles and human resource management theories will provide a framework for practice.
This book includes chapters on:
*managing professional development in a human resources context
*government policy
*initial teacher training
*the school development plan
*appraisal
*middle management
*leadership skills.
It will be of interest to co-ordinators of professional development in schools and across local education authorities, and to anyone who is part of a school's senior management team.
