Professional learning and development for schools, kura and Kāhui Ako to support capability in learning with digital technologies and build digital fluency.
The new cloud-based online PLD Learning System is being tested and piloted with users until the end of the year. The system is planned to go live in Term 1 2020. The Ministry will make a final announcement of the date through the School Leaders Bulletin.
The new system will replace the PLD Journal Excel-based spreadsheet, which must be downloaded and emailed between users, and some manual processes.
The national priorities have been refocused to support teachers and leaders and align with the focus on curriculum progress and achievement.
Schools, kura and Kāhui Ako can apply for PLD under the new priorities from Term 3 2020.
