The Ministry is running a new accreditation programme for PLD facilitators. It is our measure of quality, and shows that a facilitator has an understanding of school contexts and can deliver support that is culturally appropriate.

It also shows that the facilitator knows how to support positive transformational change, and has expertise in a certain area.

Accreditation is important if you are interested in delivering centrally-funded PLD, but it can also serve as a useful advertisement for your skills and experience to schools, kura and CoL who are paying for their own PLD. 

The Accreditation Panel is an independent panel responsible for reviewing applications from facilitators. You can view biographies of the panel members here.
