In 2016-2017 CECD worked with the Ministry of Education, Saudi Arabia to deliver an innovative programme of UK-based teacher professional development. Working with leading educators from Saudi Arabia, the aim of this programme is for participants to lead innovative change in the Saudi education system, drawing on their engagement with cutting-edge research and excellent practice in UK schools. This sixth-month programme consists of a period of intensive English-language instruction (focusing on English for academic purposes) followed by the completion of a PG Cert in Education, focusing on action research. Participants spend approximately 30% of the programme immersed in local primary and secondary schools, where they work closely with UK practitioners to develop new insights into best practice. Participants are supported throughout the programme by academic staff from the School of Education and by mentors who facilitate a bespoke learning plan for each individual. CECD at Oxford Brookes is the sole UK provider for this national initiative. We have very much enjoyed working with our first cohort of participants on this programme and we look forward to welcoming future cohorts from Saudi Arabia in 2018. We are also working to develop similar provision with partners in China and Latin America. Please contact us if you could like to know more about delivering this kind of CPD provision.
