CPD Programme Support

Support for the EDS Professional Development Programme

On this page you will find information about the CPD toolkit, the scenarios and learning guides which provide additional support for the EDS professional development programme.

 

CPD Toolkit

The multimedia toolkit including walkthrough videos to help you get the best from the EDS professional development programme for your specific needs.

Scenarios

The aim of the scenarios is to embed practical and contextualised activities for life and work into the support offered through the online training modules. Each Scenario draws on the subject matter and ideas from several training modules across the five skill areas. They can be seen as learning ‘in action’ from a teaching and learning perspective and provide exemplars of how to apply the module content.

Learning Guides

During the prior research for this programme, four groups were identified who would need additional support either because of the particular needs associated the learners and/or the constraints of the learning environment:

  • ESOL
  • Offender Learning
  • Preparation for Life and Work
  • SEND

We are therefore creating four Learning Guides to address these contexts which will:

  • Identify parts of the national standards and elements of the online training modules that are particularly appropriate for the learner group, as well as those that are challenging and, in some cases, those that cannot readily be delivered in the particular context
  • Suggest teaching approaches and identify materials and resources that are effective for this context

The Learning Guides are intended to foster discussion amongst practitioners which can be supported through the online Community of Practice on this platform.
