Professional Development

Welcome to the BTA Pro-D Committee page!

The BTA strives to maintain collaborative professional development among all teachers.  Here you will find information about workshops and facilitators, networking with colleagues, resources and other related topics.

The BTA supports teacher initiated professional development activities as outlined in the Collective Agreement.  Together with the Joint Pro-D Committee, the BTA Pro-D Committee coordinates the District Pro-D Day in February of each year.  For more information on the District Day, click on the link in the table of contents.

The BTA provides training for the Pro-D Contacts at each school.  Through the Pro-D Contacts, we hope to ensure that school-based Professional Development remains relevant to the needs of the school staff.  Information about the role and responsibilities of the Pro-D Contact can be found by clicking on the Pro-D Contact tab on the left.
