Continuing Professional Development of Teachers
Committee on Professional Development of Teachers and Principals (COTAP)
The Advisory Committee on Teacher Education and Qualifications has been renamed the Committee on Professional Development of Teachers and Principals (COTAP) since 1 June 2013 to further promote the professional development of teachers and principals across the continuum of the teaching profession.
Apart from advising the Government on policies and measures relating to the professional development of the teaching profession at different stages of professional growth, COTAP performs other functions, such as commissioning and/ or conducting educational research, evaluation studies and professional development programmes for both teachers and principals. It also serves as a platform for promoting professional sharing, collaboration and networking with various stakeholders in school management, educational bodies and organisations.
