On Demand Professional Development

Teachers based in state-funded schools in England will shortly have access to the new ODPD suite of courses, designed to enable teachers to develop their teaching with confidence in a convenient, stress-free way. These courses are available in two formats: Self-paced Study, where teachers can access any part of the course at a time to suit them, and Supported Study, where teachers follow a prescribed schedule of completing tasks and are supported by a tutor via email and optional live sessions.

ODPD courses are designed to offer complete flexibility: teachers will eventually be able to select a combination of course 'pods' which enable them to cover all of the topics in their required specification - or just a few elements of a course if they prefer.

Funding

Teachers in state-funded schools or colleges can apply for access to ODPD courses free of charge.
