Continuing Professional Development (CPD) has increasingly been seen as a fundamental element of learning, teaching and education worldwide. However, the concept of CPD lacks clarity in terms of how it is defined, as well as in its goals. This paper focuses specifically on the role of school principals in developing school and learning amongst teachers; discussing and outlining the principals’ duties with regards to teachers’ development; the way in which the principals’ work is influenced, teachers’ expansion and development, and the outcomes within the school setting. Carried out as a desk-based research that reviews extensive literature and empirical research from the last three decades, this paper concludes that CPD is not simply a form of teacher training, but a more holistic type of lifelong learning. CPD is an ongoing duty, embedded in the roles of both principals and teachers as educators, rather than a standalone programme or activity. Teachers are to be held accountable for their own development and must look to principals for guidance without depending on them completely.
