CPD Program 2023 extended to high schools

QAED Punjab launched Continues Professional Development (CPD) program in 2007. This program was established to improve the teaching and learning standers of the teachers, particularly primary school teachers working in primary and middle schools in Punjab. For this purpose, in each district of Punjab, District Training & Support Centers were established.

Averaging 60 Cluster Training and Support Centers (CTSC) was built under each DTSC. One cluster includes about 30 schools spread out over a 16-kilometer radius.

District Teacher Educators (DTEs) are assigned to each cluster (1–5) based on the schools that are affiliated with it. DTE has been given 10 to 15 schools to use for the cluster-level implementation of CPD.

Unfortunately, this CPD Program was abolished on 5th May 2017 by the school education department of Punjab and the following procedure was observed for the adjustment of offices/officials.

  • The DTSC heads will repatriate DTEs under their control and place their services at the disposal of CEOs concerned for further posting/adjustment in their respective scales i.e PST/EST/SST w.e.f 05-05-2027
  • The CEOs concerned will adjust DTEs against vacant posts in their respective pay scales i.e PST/EST/SST w.e.f 05-05-2027
  • The DTSC heads will place the services of all DATA Entry Operators, Junior Clerks, Drivers and Naib Qasid at the disposal of CEOs for further posting /adjustment in their respective pay scale.
  • The CEOs will adjust the DATA Entry Operators, Junior Clerks, Drivers and Naib Qasid (Who were working in the discontinued CPD program) in their respective pay scales in their district at the nearest vacant post

After the adjustment of all Officers/Officials, the CPD program was handed over to Assistant Education Officers(AEOs) who were instructed to observe the classroom 2 times a month. The purpose of the classroom observation visits is to observe teachers teaching and to
provide feedback to help them improve. As per their ToRs, AEOs are required to conduct at least two classroom observations per school per month. The aim is to build a cycle of data collection (observation), action, and evaluation, led by AEOs working with schools and teachers in their markaz.

The classroom observation tool (COT) is designed to collect data about 11 following teaching practices.

  1. Meet the headteacher (5-10 minutes)
  2. Find out about the lesson you will observe (5 minutes)
  3. Observe the lesson
  4. Complete the observation form (10 minutes)
  5. Discuss the lesson with the teacher (20 minutes)
  6. Complete the form (10 minutes)
  7. Upload data to the app (10 minutes)

The AEOs visit the primary and middle schools for the observation of Primary School Teachers (PSTs). Now school education department has issued a notification in connection with ” Broadening the Scope of the Continues Professional Development CP program 2023 to the High and Higher Secondary Schools Having Primar Portion”.

In this regard, Assistant Education Officers (AEOs) shall visit the primary portion of high and higher secondary schools to conduct classroom observation through Classroom Observation Tool (COT) and to engage the teachers in Teacher Forum Meetings (TFM).

All the chief executive officers in Punjab are directed to request to add high & higher secondary schools having primary portions in Marakaz according to school gender.
