Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
The purpose of continuing professional development at RMGS is to enable teachers to flourish in the profession. CPD should be progressive and relevant. CPD should also equip teachers to deal with behaviour management as well as craft their pedagogy.
At RMGS, the CPD programme also focuses on student well-being, to ensure staff are aware of current developments in student welfare, mental health and LGBTQ issues.
The CPD programme at RMGS ensures that staff are up-to-date on policies such as Prevent, Health and Safety, Internet Safety and Safeguarding.
An important part of any school CPD progamme is subject knowledge development. Each department at RMGS has its own CPD budget to spend. Staff attend exam board meetings as well as conferences aimed at deepening subject knowledge. The NQTs attend Prince’s Trust Institute days for subject enrichment.
