Ministry of Education Professional Learning and Development

Major changes to centrally-funded Professional Learning And Development (PLD) were made at the beginning of 2017.

A few facts:

  • Centrally funded PLD is focussed on building equity and excellence in a small number of priority areas.
  • It is allocated regionally by a panel that includes sector representatives.
  • You are able to apply every term. Dates are available here.
  • The Area Allocation panel will be looking for evidence that you used a comprehensive inquiry process to develop your proposal.
  • You will select a facilitator from an online panel and work with that facilitator to develop a programme of work.

If you would like advice on applying for centrally-funded PLD, you will find the fact sheets and resources on this Ministry website very helpful.
