What PLD does the Ministry of Education fund?

The Ministry of Education funds locally-focussed PLD, nationally-focussed PLD and PLD through networks of expertise. Most of the funding is allocated locally.

Locally-focussed PLD

Locally focussed PLD receives the bulk of the funds. It is allocated locally, decisions are transparent and made jointly by the Ministry and the sector. It is a flexible system that gives schools, kura and Kahui Ako access to PLD tailored to their needs.

Nationally-focussed PLD

Currently National PLD supports Leadership and Digital Technologies / Hangarau Matihiko. The focus changes as new areas identified.

Networks of Expertise PLD 

Funding for Networks of Expertise supports peer-to-peer teacher networks to build knowledge and capability in specific areas.
