ESF CPD Day 17th Oct '16

Creating an Environment where Learners Flourish

Dear CPD Coordinators,

On Monday 17th October all Primary, Kindergarten and EAs join together to inquire into and to further develop their understanding of how we can, "Create an Environment Where Learners Flourish". This theme comes directly from the ESF Design Principles for Learning which align with the core values and develops the Learning Goals, which were the focus of the last foundation wide CPD day.

Staff can choose from a range of workshops connected to their interests, personal inquiries or school development needs.

Learning options for the day...

Option 1: Choose one deepdive (4.5 hours) all day


Option 2: Choose three separate sessions (90mins each) across the day

Role of the CPD Coordinator in gathering workshop proposals

1) Promote and raise the profile of the CPD day with staff. You may find the information on this email and the attached flyer useful.


2) Target and support your staff by talking through possible workshops ideas (see list of possible workshops on flyer).

Please support your staff when writing their proposals by helping them to write an engaging descriptor (exemplar descriptors here: http://bit.ly/27csVn0) and decide which workshop length and target audience would be most suitable for the content of the workshop. The google submission form for the workshop applicant to complete is below.


At least TWO submissions per school please. All workshop proposals to be submitted by: 8th June so that the conference committee can review and select presentations to create a balanced program based on the theme ‘Creating an environment where learners flourish’.

Link for the Workshop Submissions googleform.

All workshop leaders will be informed by the end of year...

...and invited to an ESF workshop and planning session that supports our workshop leaders in developing and implementing an engaging, relevant and meaningful workshop.
