Department for Education

The Department for Education (DFE) is the UK government department responsible for child protectioneducation (compulsory, further, and higher education), apprenticeships, and wider skills in England.


The standard from the Department of Education should be used by everyone working in, and with, schools to raise expectations for professional development, to focus on achieving the greatest improvement in pupil outcomes, and to develop our teachers as respected members of the profession. Teaching is regulated by Ofstead, however, there are no set numbers of CPD hours or activities that teachers need to undertake. The individual schools are responsible for sourcing and recording CPD activities.

For more CPD information please contact this organisation directly.
