CPD consists of any educational activity which helps to maintain, develop or increase knowledge, problem-solving skills or professional competence all with the goal that the particular professional can provide better service to his/her clients. Most professional bodies make CPD mandatory for their members annually.
N.T.I., in pursuance of its mandate, has seriously embraced the idea of CPD for the Nigerian Teachers. To this end, NTI, on request from the Local, State or Federal Government through their various agencies, organises periodic courses, conferences and workshops to expose existing teachers to new technics and professional standards thereby continually upholding the standard of education in the country.
Any Education Authority that does not embrace CPD, would only have a decayed teaching staff its domain.
