As part of our Continuing Professional Development in Basic Education (cpdBE) project we aim to encourage the exchange of information about good practice and what works / what doesn’t work during a series of face-to-face workshops.

The workshops are one-day events in Colombia, Brazil and Mexico. They include a combination of expert-led presentations and participant-driven discussions. The workshops have a consultative nature in that it focuses on participants’ experiences and needs in CPD. 

Report from the cpdBE Colombia workshop

The first cpdBE workshop was held in Bogotá (Colombia) on 22 July 2019. This all-day event counted with 24 participants, who were British Council staff from across the region and external consultants who work in projects in Colombia. This workshop took an inward look at what the British Council understands as good CPD, how it can strengthen its CPD programmes and how countries can share knowledge in this area.
