About the book: Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is an important element of the career progression for all of us. In "Train to Gain", experienced school library practitioner, Barbara Band, reflects on the nature and range of CPD and why it is necessary. She examines the personal and organisational benefits, important aspects and possible challenges and barriers, and suggests some ways to undertake CPD in differing circumstances. This is a must-read publication for everyone working in school libraries who wishes to maintain their learning and keep their library knowledge up to date.
