The state of play

  • PLD the strongest system lever in improving educational outcomes yet:
  • Plethora of providers;
  • Sporadic access;
  • Lack of in depth work.

Teacher requirements

  • Ongoing PLD.
  • Trusted.
  • Local.
  • Available to all.
  • Sound balance of internal and external expertise.

The old consensus: SSS evaluation

  • Equity in access to services.
  • Synergy between pre-service and in-service teacher education.
  • Consistency of implementation of the national curriculum.
  • Schools development rather than individual teacher development focus.

SSS evaluation continued

  • A future focus to assist schools to look beyond the immediate issues and to proactively shape vision and direction.
  • Teaching practice is informed by evidence, thus forging a closer relationship in which knowledge is valued and shared.

Meenakshi’s Findings

  • Increased information sharing to direct PLD.
  • Focus on the school as a system to better use the resource.
  • Coordinated and connected PLD.
