Derventio Develops TDT Audit Tool

Derventio Education develops the Teacher Development Trust (TDT) CPD Audit Tool.

November 2021


Derventio Education are the development team for the Teacher Development Trust CPD audit tool. The CPD audit tool enables the Trust to review, analyse and gain greater insights into staff professional development within schools and school trusts. As a leader in edtech, we will utilise our sector knowledge to develop a tool that will have a very positive impact on education.


The Teacher Development Trust has an outstanding reputation for promoting professional learning to help children succeed and teachers thrive. They are the national charity for effective professional development in schools and colleges and are supported by the Department for Education, Education Endowment Foundation, Times Education Supplement Global and Durham University.

In working with schools, colleges and trusts they are able to assess current CPD provision to then devise improvement strategies, often focussing on staff collaboration, enquiry and coaching. Data is gathered via interviews and surveys which enables strengths and areas for development to be identified.


The audit tool enables collective data to be analysed and filtering will enable data to be broken down into key stages, subjects and geographical areas. Trend analysis will be enhanced and this will help to fuel powerful research for the education sector.

There is a strong synergy between Derventio Education and the Teacher Development Trust. Both organisations have expertise in staff development and recognise the need to embed effective professional development. The partnership has been warmly received by both organisations.

The TDT CPD Audit is built using Scrutiny from Derventio Education.

We are delighted to be working with such an influential voice in education. In developing a bespoke software solution for the Teacher Development Trust, we are proud to be furthering their excellent work to promote the principles of effective CPD. This news is a further demonstration of Derventio Education’s involvement in the education sector.

Managing Director - Derventio Education
Our partnership is exciting. This more sophisticated audit tool will offer greater insights, be more user-friendly and support the practical application of the work that we do with schools. Since TDT's foundation, we have collated a wealth of data about CPD from hundreds of schools. We look forward to being able to analyse this information in greater depth in order to enhance our research and help shape our school programmes.
