One of the aims of the Researching Effective CPD in Mathematics Education (RECME) project was to characterise CPD for teachers of mathematics. This paper presents an outline of the findings related to this aim, describing the landscape of professional development within thirty sample initiatives in terms of:

1 the different organisational structures of CPD initiatives

2 the ways in which CPD initiatives attend to interrelated aspects of mathematical knowledge for teaching: mathematics, students’ concepts in mathematics and ways of teaching mathematics

3 approaches to trying out new ideas in the classroom and embedding change found in the CPD initiatives
