The PDST Health and Wellbeing team aims to provide high quality professional development and support that empowers teachers and schools to provide the best possible education for all pupils.


The details supplied by your school will help the Department of Education and Skills to put an appropriate programme of continuing professional development in place for teachers, beginning during the 2020/21 school year.  For the same reason, we would ask that the principal or teacher(s) intending to seek this CPD would complete the questionnaire.
