English Australia CPD Framework
Using the CPD Framework
Step 1: Teachers' professional development (PD) needs are determined
- Teachers can self-assess their development needs using the Cambridge English Teacher Development Tracker or undertake a diagnostic assessment using the European Profiling Grid self-assessment tool for teachers.
- Teachers can request an indication of their specific development areas from their managers
- Teachers can use recent observations feedback to inform their PD choices
Step 2: Teachers match their PD needs to resources from the English Australia CPD Framework Grid
Current CPD Framework Grid (regularly updated)

Step 3: Teachers record their PD activities
Recording CPD activities is essential not only for keeping track of your learning but also to reflect on new knowledge and make plans to experiment with it in your teaching. The CPD Record template, in conjunction with any Statements of Attendance, can be used as proof of activities teachers have engaged in and can be referred to in annual reviews and job applications.
Step 4: Teachers reflect on PD activities undertaken, discuss these activities with peers, plan to experiment with relevant new learning in the classroom and then share this experimentation with others.
