At Nelson and Colne College, David Moore regards staff development as one of the most important aspects of his role as Principal. In this programme, we see extracts from four of his annual "St...aff Development Interviews" which he gives his entire teaching staff. He also explains his philosophy of the process and various members of staff explain staff development at the College as it has affected them. The programme should be seen as raw material which raises a variety of issues about staff development, and an aide-memoire (in tho form of a number of still frames and quotes from the programme) is provided in the notes.
