Why a CPD Framework? • For Australian ELICOS context • An attempt to continue raising the standard of teaching throughout the ELICOS industry • Value? – Supports member colleges and individuals – Teachers/managers don’t always know what’s out there – Expensive to develop an in-house program – Structured delivery of a variety of PD for different teaching phases – A system for teachers to keep track of their PD – Guidelines on the amount of PD to be undertaken annually – PD for casual teachers who may migrate between colleges – Adds to legitimacy of profession

Framework Assumptions • Designed to work in conjunction with in-house CPD Programs • Uses European Profiling Grid and Cambridge English Teaching Framework to define teacher development phases • Designed for qualified ELICOS teachers • Teachers’ development will not be uniform across competencies • Draws on various content such as the Cambridge English Teacher and British Council materials • Framework will be updated and will evolve
  6. 6. How to use the CPD Framework Four easy steps:

Step 1: Teachers' professional development (PD) needs are determined • Self-assessment using the Cambridge English Teacher Development Tracker or undertake a diagnostic assessment using the European Profiling Grid self-assessment tool for teachers • Teachers can request an indication of their specific development areas from their managers • Teachers can use recent observations feedback to inform their choices
