Organisations which can deliver centrally-funded PLD

The redesign of centrally-funded professional learning and development (PLD) allows schools, kura and Kāhui Ako to make PLD proposals that are targeted and tailored to their own specific achievement challenges, and to select PLD facilitators that can deliver PLD that takes into account their own needs and contexts.

In tandem with introducing this freedom and choice, the Ministry established a number of quality control measures to ensure that schools, kura and Kāhui Ako could have confidence in the choices available to them.

These measures were:


All facilitators who wish to deliver centrally-funded PLD must complete an application for accreditation, which is assessed by an independent panel. More on the accreditation process is available here.


All facilitators who deliver centrally-funded PLD must also work for an organisation which has passed an RFP process. This process ensured that a range of professional and legal requirements were met.

The following organisations have passed the RFP. Only facilitators working for these organisations are eligible to deliver centrally-funded PLD:
