Continuing Professional Development Points

Points for NEAS Professional Development

NEAS Professional Development advances the quality of education with a specific focus on the English Language Teaching (ELT) sector by facilitating continuous improvement, supporting ELT centres to meet their quality goals and strengthening the ELT sector’s professional development capacity.

NEAS Professional Development (PD) is accessible to anyone in the ELT community.  NEAS supports and encourages continuing professional development (CPD) by assigning CPD points to each of its PD activities.

Continuing professional development (CPD) is the process of recording formal and informal professional development from all sources through assigning points to relevant PD in order to maintain and build knowledge, skills, experience and currency in one’s professional life. 

Earning CPD through a number of the activities through NEAS validates quality learning for teachers, managers and ELT professionals.
