Making a PLD proposal

Communities of Learning (CoLs), schools and kura looking to access centrally funded PLD should start thinking about their PLD needs for the coming year.

Before making a proposal, there are a number of things you need to consider which includes:

  • Does your CoL, school or kura have a high number of students achieving below expected standards
  • Does your CoL, school or kura have achievement challenges in National Priorities and is your proposal to access PLD aimed at lifting student outcomes in National priority areas?

To complete a PLD proposal there are a number of questions your proposal should answer. These include: 

  • What are you trying to achieve?
  • How does this relate to the overall goals or strategic direction of the school, kura or CoL?
  • Who else will be leading the PLD?
  • Details of what support you need?  
  • What other internal expertise do you have to support the PLD?
  • What external expertise do you need?
  • What other PLD will you be undertaking during this period?

 The Ministry is now accepting proposals for PLD to be delivered from Term 1 2017.

There is a proposal template that can guide schools, kura and CoL available here.
