We should value the voice of FE teachers, college lecturer Sam Jones says

As a new teacher, finding the right CPD can feel a bit like searching for a needle in a haystack.

There are many courses out there aimed at teachers – both online and in-person; for free and for a fee. There are ones that will give you letters after your name, and ones that will just give you a certificate of attendance.
