The Pathway Builder is designed to enrich your skills as a teacher educator. To guide you smoothly through this journey, please follow these systematic steps:

  1. Familiarise yourself with the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Framework for teacher educators.
  2. Take the Teacher Educator Self-Assessment Tool (TESAT) and use the Profile Chart to record your strengths and the skills areas (professional practices) you’d like to develop further.
  3. Browse the list of curated resources and select the resources you think will best contribute to developing the areas you identified from the TESAT.
  4. Download the pathway builder template to record and reflect on how the resource will help you develop your skills and understanding as a teacher educator.
  5. At the end of the 8-week period, review the learning and reflection in your completed template, submit the Pathway Builder form and download your certificate.

Places are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. If you can commit to at least an hour weekly and are keen to provide post-programme feedback, secure your place and register your interest as soon as possible.
