I feel so frustarted that members of staff question why there are no CPDs available – and yet when we get sonething going, the request is to reduce the time becasue it is too much. I really cannot get my head round this. Ive treid CPDs after school for an hour – people couldnt make it beacsue they had other commmitments. I treid running them duirng break- people felt they wer ebeing derived of their break. Anyone with ideas here? Saraj, what time of the day do you run your TA meetings? One problem we have is that TAs are paid for set hours of work – not paid during holidays, bank holidays etc. So after school hours does not work for them.
