GoodCPDGuide, launched in January 2012, is a free database of high-quality professional development resources for education, including:
- Training courses
- Consultancy services
The site is entirely free for everyone. There is no charge to search, book courses or buy resources and no charge for training providers to list and promote their courses.
GoodCPDGuide is owned and operated by the Teacher Development Trust an independent charity (Charity Commission number 1147447). We pride ourselves on helping schools and organisations improve outcomes for children and young people through targeted training and CPD which is based on international evidence of what works most effectively. Find out more about our services here.
Our mission is to ensure that all CPD on our site is of the highest quality. We have a three-pronged approach to quality assurance:
- All providers must sign up to our Code of Practice which ensures they are delivering relevant and effective training
- Anyone in our community of users are able to add reviews to any course or resource. Reviewers are asked to rate the quality of delivery, the impact on their professional practice, and the standard of facilities.
- We carry out random sampling of the listings on our site to ask for evidence of effectiveness and compliance with our Code of practice.
