The system of support section on the NZC website has information about the everyday resources and tools available to learners, teachers, leaders, and schools. The purpose of these centrally funded and managed supports is to supplement a school’s improvement actions.
Professional Learning and Development (PLD) is the provision of support for leaders and teachers to improve student achievement outcomes, particularly for priority learner groups, across a number of identified areas.
Allocation of these resources is based on priority of need and is linked to schools’ targets and annual plans as set out in their charters. Schools need to talk with local or regional MoE staff about these supports.
Your local office Ministry of Education advisor is available to support in your next steps.
Tools to help with this can be found in the Self-review tools section of NZ Curriculum Online. Your analysis will be the basis for requesting PLD from your Regional Team.
