Our professional development resources for teachers are all aligned to the professional practices in the Continuing Professional Development framework for teachers. At the British Council, we recognise that developing in key areas of classroom practice is something which continues throughout our careers and has the biggest impact on student learning.

From understanding your learners to promoting 21st century skills, you will find relevant and useful content, including articles and blog posts written by experts from around the world, webinars and conference recordings given by renowned speakers, publications and research, and practical tips for your teaching practice and beyond.
