The MTPT Project community is full of teachers like you pursuing CPD endeavours big and small as a way of protecting their wellbeing, striking a balance between personal and professional identities and using their parental leave as a career opportunity. Read our collection of case studies to help plan your own parental leave CPD journey.
We love to think creatively about what “counts” as professional learning, how these activities can directly and indirectly impact student outcomes, and which suit the different stages of raising a small human being. Our list is not exhaustive but it might get you excited about all the CPD opportunities that parental leave can offer.
We celebrate and amplify the voices of our community through our blogging platform. Our current blogs explore reflections on parental leave CPD, family friendly school practices and our “Motherhood and Headship” interview series. These blogs offer a range of practical tips, recommendations and showcase the variety of experience within our network.
