Personal commitment to their own professionalism

Individual teachers and trainers have a responsibility for their own professionalism. They shape and influence their own development often in collaboration with peers and with the support of their employers and their professional body. Leaders and managers have the responsibility for the culture, ethos and systems that support a professional workforce to be at its best. The employer does not own the professionalism of individual practitioners, as this would damage and detract from the vital personal commitment of being an up-to-date and reflective professional. PETA-SA professional body membership supports teachers and trainers to look curiously and widely to best practice nationally and internationally, as well as enabling reciprocity and sharing of good practice between members. Commitment to collaboration is integral to the professional identity and roles of all teaching and learning practitioners and to the work of the professional body in fostering this, as well as leaders and managers.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) keeps individuals on the top of our game and encourages everyone to maintain and development as teachers and trainers, and prevents stagnation by keeping up to date through CPD rewarding programmes.
