What professional learning is available?
In the current environment we recognise the challenges that all staff face in adapting to significant changes in the way teaching and learning occurs. This includes the way in which we undertake professional learning and the method in which it is delivered.
As we manage return to school and the restrictions still in place due to COVID-19, face-to-face professional learning will not be available until we have been advised it's safe to do so.
Term 1, 2021 professional learning offerings are now available to enrol in via MyPL. We are not yet able to offer face-to-face conferences or events. The team have planned a full agenda delivered to you as virtual live sessions. We look forward to any feedback you would like to provide.
Please visit our course catalogue to see the range of professional learning available including, live scheduled interactive and recorded sessions for school-based non-teaching staff in your area.
We encourage you to share this information with your colleagues and participate in as many of these professional learning offerings as possible.
