Research into language teaching has made great strides forward over the past decades. Long gone are the days when it was sufficient to teach some basic grammar and repeat lists of vocabulary. Teaching has become more sophisticated, where the learner takes centre stage.

Many nowadays believe that the effective teacher is the developing teacher: it is ever more difficult to stand still in one's development as an English language teacher. Continuing Professional Development is a process that helps teachers and managers meet the challenges of their work and achieve their goals, as well as those of their learning centre.
