Information about becoming an accredited facilitator
From 2016 the Ministry has run an accreditation process 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 appropriate.
To deliver locally-focussed PLD you must be an accredited facilitator and it can also serve as a useful advertisement for your skills and experience to schools, kura and Kāhui Ako who are paying for their own PLD.
The Ministry is currently re-designing its accreditation process in consultation with PLD Providers. The last round of accreditation using the initial accreditation process was in November 2018. A new process comes into effect from 2019.
While the new accreditation process is redeveloped the Ministry assures all facilitators that their accreditation status is still valid.
