The Continuing Professional Development series sets out to demystify professional development in education, and does so from a Scottish perspective. All books in the series approach their subject in an accessible manner that allows teachers and educators to perceive how continuing professional development can enhance job satisfaction - as well as making a real difference to the most important client group of all: the pupils and students in their care.
