Any facilitator delivering professional learning and development to Communities of Learning | Kāhui Ako, schools or kura can apply for accreditation.
Accreditation is essential if you want to deliver centrally-funded PLD and optional if you are delivering specialist services that CoL, schools and kura purchase from their own funds.
Centrally-funded PLD may only be delivered by accredited facilitators. For PLD provider organisations that are tendering for centrally-funded PLD, all of the facilitators that will be referenced in their tenders must be accredited, or have a pending accreditation application submitted.
All individual facilitators must apply for accreditation. We suggest that you co-ordinate with your facilitators to ensure that they are following all necessary steps.
