Continued professional development (CPD) is defined broadly as learning opportunities with well-defined sequence and learning objectives. These should be designed to enhance a leader’s professional competence, knowledge and skills. CPD may include multi-session programs, such as certificate programs and leadership institutes, as well as professional workshops. Effective continued professional development is linked to personal development goals and school improvement initiatives – it is not an end in itself but a means to instructional improvement.

Hillel International recently announced an ambitious new project that seeks to strengthen the talent pipeline for Jewish organizations through new positions for recent college graduates on campuses across the country. The Springboard Fellowship will train cohorts of young Jewish professionals in highly-valued skillsets and place them at local Hillel campuses for two years. The Springboard Fellowship is a reimagining of the Steinhardt Jewish Campus Service Corps Fellowship, which Hillel ran from 1994 to 2008 and trained a generation of emerging Jewish communal leaders through their roles in Jewish student engagement. Seeking to build the next generation of Jewish professionals and equip them with broadly applicable skills, this new fellowship hopes to serve 500 fellows in its first five years. The Springboard Fellowship comes as part of Hillel International’s Drive to Excellence and its efforts to recruit and maintain top-level talent, essential to increasing Hillel’s levels of student engagement on college campuses

As Jewish professionals, we are expected to be able to teach the Torah we’ve learned – but rarely are we trained to do it well. At Kevah, we have years of experience running adult learning groups nationally, and we have developed a unique model that sees the educator as not just a content expert, but as a skilled facilitator who helps to create a 'group chevruta.' Transform the way you teach Jewish texts at the Kevah Teaching Fellowship in June 2017 in Berkeley, CA.
