The responsibility for facilitating effective continuing professional development (CPD) is based firmly in schools. Frequently, decisions are based on gut feeling, advertisements received or prior experiences. Effective Teacher Development encourages readers to move beyond this and to enhance their strategic decision making in order to effectively develop CPD programmes within their school, partner schools, federations or school chains. The theory behind CPD is explored, drawing on research and evidence from recent practice, including a 10-year international longitudinal study of the effectiveness of professional development to teachers. Readers are supported to develop their understanding of the whole life cycle of a CPD programme, from setting up a new programme to evaluating the effectiveness of existing provision. Chapter summaries and navigational tools support readers looking for guidance on particular issues and questions encourage readers to reflect on the impact of suggestions in their own particular context. Effective Teacher Development is essential reading for all involved in designing, implementing and developing effective CPD programmes.

This guide presents a description of the standards and related skills school leaders must master and apply. Since every school leader needs a well-defined philosophy to make decisions, the guide emphasizes philosophical, performance, and ethical dimensions of school leadership. The book's 10 chapters address such issues as visionary leadership, including the skills and disposition needed to lead others to peak performance; the political skills needed for school governance in a democracy; the proficiency in communication and community relations required for articulating a vision; the skills in organizational management; insights on developing a curriculum design and delivery system for diverse school communities; expertise in instructional management and the development of a data-based student-achievement system; the related need to focus on staff evaluation and staff development; the knowledge that school leaders need to make the most of educational research, evaluation, and planning; and the importance of understanding and modeling appropriate value systems, ethics, and moral leadership. Two appendices offer an overview of major advances in standard settings and an overview of future trends. (RJM)
