A look at the research...

Find out how enquiry-based CPD can benefit the classroom through the case studies of four teachers at Colegrave Primary School in east London.
Children at the school explain how they think teachers keep up with good practice, while a team of teachers and CPD leader Kulvarn Atwal leave behind traditional CPD techniques to pick their own enquiry topics.
In preparation for this, Nicole Charalambous visited a nearby school to investigate target-setting for writing in Year 4, and Sabiha Dadabahi experimented with learning journals in Year 1. Katie Black developed a marking scheme with her Year 5 pupils while Lando du Plooy involves parents with their Year 6 children's learning.
CPD leader Kulvarn later reflects on the parallels between enabling children to learn, and being a good CPD facilitator.
