Continuing Professional Development

Professional development for all staff at Barnsley Academy is recognised as central to improving the quality of learning and achievement for our students. All staff are entitled to access continuing professional development (CPD) and are expected to take personal responsibility for their own professional development. At Barnsley Academy we believe effective CPD is a learning opportunity which enables staff to keep their skills and knowledge at the cutting edge of practice, keep up to date with changes and developments in the curriculum and further enhance their pedagogy. It encourages innovation based on knowledge and research, and, most importantly, enables staff to be the best they can be in order to provide the very best provision for our young people.
