The Process - Getting Started

Once you decide to commit your school or college to the CPD Mark we recommend you take the following steps:

  1. Show the CPD Mark PowerPoint presentation to your SLT so that there is a good understanding about what is involved in the process and the benefits
  2. Set up a small CPD Mark working party and discuss your priorities, your outline action plan and schedule as well as the split of responsibilities
  3. Complete the Starting Points self-evaluation questionnaire to identify your current sources of CPD. We’ll send you this once you have committed yourself to the process
  4. Encourage staff to take a look at this website for an overview and the opportunity to watch the video clips of interviews with schools that have been through the process
  5. Attend the CPD Mark Introductory course: Improving the Quality of Your CPD - with The CPD Mark. At this course you will have guidance of a CPD Mark Advisor to help you to identify and record the evidence required for the successful completion of each step of the Framework – and to prepare for assessment
  6. Refer to our Guidance for Compiling Evidence before starting to complete the exemplar Framework
  7. Please refer to our resource page to ensure that you have as much support as possible at every stage
