CDETB Introduction To Pal
Whether it’s a colleague sharing their lesson plans with you or a Department Head chatting to you about your learners, peer-support and experience-sharing are invaluable both to new and more-experienced teachers, alike.
PAL recognises and acknowledges the importance of these informal learning conversations – which take place daily in staff canteens, resource rooms, and school corridors – and places peer support at the heart of CPD.
Explaining PAL’s point-based system, and the accessibility of this CPD model, this short video-presentation will show you how easy it is to become a PAL champion, and how seamlessly it can blended with the TELMS model – so that not only can you be mentored, you can also become a learning champion in the process.
