Professional Learning

The professional development of staff at Idris Davies School 3-18 is a high priority.  The benefit of professional learning is to enhance teacher’s skills and impact on pupil outcomes. Teachers engage in professional learning to stimulate their thinking and professional knowledge and to ensure that their practice is critically informed and current.  At Idris Davies, we pride ourselves in developing our school as a learning organisation, learning from one another.
