A presentation of the model of teacher CPD being developed by the Open University's Vital programme. This model is based on teachers as co-enquirers, with CPD conceptualised as a extension of the practitioner research cycle. Findings and outcomes of any CPD activity are seen as adding to the teacher's own personal knowledge base and that of their professional community. Thus CPD moves from the individual to the institutional and system level.
