What is involved in applying for PLD?
This 8-minute video from the Ministry of Education gives a good overview of the steps to access centrally funded PLD.
This PLD is centred around an inquiry model which requires schools to know which problems of practice they wish to improve in order to lift student achievement. This means that your application must be backed up with relevant evidence and detail how you will monitor the impact of the PLD.
As former school leaders, we are best-placed to help you apply - we can guide you to develop a successful application for your school/kura or Kāhui Ako/Community of Learning. We can even provide you with examples of successful applications and best practices to make your application successful.
