Summary Note EPI and Ambition Institute were commissioned by the Wellcome Trust to examine the costs and benefits of a policy entitling all teachers to thirty-five hours of high-quality professional development every year. This rapid review of existing literature informs that analysis. Teacher professional development is a promising approach to improving teaching quality and pupil outcomes. Evidence on effective teacher professional development is not yet conclusive, but the recent increase in rigorous evaluations of professional development interventions invites fresh analysis. This review identified 53 randomised controlled trials of professional development interventions: interventions in which professional development played an important role in changing teachers’ practices and improving student learning. We analysed data from these studies to identify the average impact of professional development. [Executive summary, ed]
