Professional Development (PD) is a process which helps teachers to maintain the quality and efficiency of teaching by improving their skills and updating their knowledge. However, many countries are not able to carry out professional development for their teachers due to many reasons. Issues such as budget and releasing teachers are challenges faced by many countries. The government of Maldives gives a high priority, for improving the standard of teaching and strongly accepts that the quality of teaching can be improved when school-based professional development (SBPD) of teachers is institutionalized in the school system.
The Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) strives to support the schools to established SBPD across the nation. Under the Ministry of Education’s professional development policy, a government policy, it is required for every teacher to complete a minimum of 15 hours of professional development every year. These PD hours are conducted by schools as SBPD. Three days are allocated in the academic calendar to conduct PD.
The purpose of this research is to assess the impact of professional development programs carried out in a secondary school on teaching and learning.
