Developing a model for effective large-scale continuous professional development (CPD) for teachers remains a significant obstacle for many governments worldwide. This paper describes Vital, an innovative ‘bottom up’ response that reconceptualises CPD to enhance the teaching of information communication technology (ICT) in state-funded primary and secondary schools in England. Vital’s effectiveness lies in its approach which encourages and responds to teachers’ reflective practice as an effective model of ICT CPD, well suited for the teaching and learning demands of the 21st century.
