This is an adapted version of an article written by David Weston, chief executive of the Teacher Development Trust, which appeared in NGA's bi-monthly Governing Matters magazine.

The quality of a school can never exceed the quality of the teaching, or so goes the aphorism. Given that a governing board’s number one priority for a school is a high quality of education, it must follow that the number one focus should be constantly improving the quality of teaching. However, CPD (continuing professional development) is too often merely an afterthought which means that governors are missing one of the biggest levers at their disposal to help a school.
