I have been asked to re-write our CPD Policy. The current policy is permeated by 'training' and this is something that I would like to address by recasting with a distinct 'learning' focus, particularly in recognising that learning happens all the time, in a variety of ways and places and that we should facilitate learning, through continuous collaboration, sharing of good practice, reflective practice etc. Hopefully, people will start to take greater ownership of their learning and not wait to be trained. I've been following much of Jane Hart's thoughts on the non-training approach and realise that there is an element of 'letting go' and trusting people to keep learning without having to be in control, so to speak. I will also need to incorporate that training does have its place.
I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or advice about how to help influence and shape learning through a policy?
