Progress Report: October 2016

PLD Proposals and Allocation Panels

All Area Offices are now accepting PLD proposals for Term 1 2017. In addition, each area is establishing an allocation panel of sector representatives that will review PLD proposals.

Successful applicants will be allocated hours in mid-November, and will be able to view and choose their facilitators from November 25 onwards.

Providers and Facilitators

The first round of PLD accreditation is nearly complete. We are notifying facilitators of their results on a rolling basis.

You can learn more about the accreditation process here.


The Ministry’s two year leadership support package is made up of a leadership programme for beginning principals and an Emerging Leaders programme for Communities of Learning.

RFPs have recently been published for both of these programmes. You can find out more about them here.
