Professional Growth Cycle

Professional Guidance Cycle

From the 1st of February 2021 the Professional Growth Cycle became the new requirement for registered teachers. (The Teaching Council had placed a moratorium on collecting evidence for performance appraisal from July 2020 to 31 January 2021.) 

Because this is new the Teaching Council have acknowledged that it will continue to be developed and improve over time.


  1. What does it mean for ECE services? And what should ECE service managers/ leaders do?
  2. Does this mean that teachers will no longer by accountable for their own practice?
  3. How is the PGC different from performance appraisal as we know it?
  4. Will the endorsement process for professional leaders remain the same?
  5. if I have any questions who should I contact and where can I get more information?
