A successful Cambridge Professional Development Programme (Cambridge PDQ) is well-balanced and well-sequenced. The elements of guided learning, individual and collaborative learning, and school-based learning should come together into an experience which transforms thinking and practice.
Our guidelines for programme design give programme leaders and their colleagues a clear framework for designing for quality to meet our expectations.
All Cambridge PDQ programmes share essential features. However within our guidelines we encourage programme leaders to design programmes that best suit the context and the needs of their teachers, leaders and schools.
