MembershipWelcome to CPA Inc.
WHOLE SCHOOL MEMBERSHIP
Whole School Membership is an option for schools with many CP qualified teachers and is determined by enrolment – not numbers of CP trained individuals or their level of training. This can provide a school with a significant discount if the school pays CPA Inc. membership for their on-staff profilers.
The CPA Inc. Individual Membership cost is related to your level of training. The number of available support resources made available to you also changed in relation to your level of training or Instructor level.

From A Lighthouse School Principal
“We all know “good” teachers and believe in the golden why of why it is so vitally important for us to be building our own and the capability of more good teachers. The profiling process, clearly identified, described and documented why these teachers are good. It broke “wow” teaching down into identifiable, achievable chunks of deliberate practice. Janet Thomson bought the elements to life in a practical, humorous and very real way and built confidence in the process. A powerful way to reflect, refine and improve on your own practice and assist others in doing the same.
