The Professional Review and Development (PRD) meeting between the individual teacher and his/her line manager/reviewer is a vital part of the PRD process, supporting the ongoing professional learning of colleagues.  The PRD process has been put into the spotlight through GTCS Professional Update with a particular emphasis on coaching as an effective approach to PRD meetings.  

Evaluation of the pilot stages of Professional Update identified positive changes in the nature and value of the PRD meeting, and in the approach underpinning the structure and focus of the PRD process.  The evaluation also identified the need to support PRD Reviewers.

 The programme will cover:

  • The Quality of the PRD Process – effective and supportive PRD
  • PRD self-evaluation tools including success wheels and scaling
  • Coaching conversations incorporating effective questioning and listening
  • Engaging with GTCS Professional Standards 

The programme will aim to develop the skills and confidence of Reviewers to adopt coaching approaches and to appropriately challenge and develop meaningful dialogue around evidence of impact. 

The day will be led by Jacqueline Morley, Senior Education Officer (Career-long Learning and Leadership) at GTCS who led last year's highly rated SCIS CPD Co-ordinators' conference.
