Academic Staff CPD
The John Lyon School is a learning community. The aim of continuous professional development is to enable teachers to be reflective practitioners, to provide a framework for enhancing their skills and responding to individual needs. All members of the teaching staff are entitled to take advantage of opportunities to enhance their professional development, and the School encourages them to do so. The CPD programme includes collaboration with colleagues in departmental teams, participation in programmes of induction for staff new to the School and NQTs, in-School research projects, observation of each other’s lessons and experience of the wider educational world. Our emphasis on CPD ensures the delivery of the best possible teaching and learning at the School, and supports teachers’ career aspirations.
