Regionally-allocated PLD

Our Accredited Facilitators can provide free support to guide your school, kura, Kāhui Ako and cluster through submitting a regionally-allocated PLD tono (application). Email us at or contact one of our accredited facilitators direct. PLD opportunities offered through regionally-allocated PLD must align with one or more of the PLD priorities. The new priorities that underpin regionally-allocated PLD are:

Māori Medium: Mātauranga and te reo Māori, Marau ā-kura, Aromatawai.
English Medium: Cultural capability, Local curriculum design, Assessment for learning.
Hangarau Matihiko (Digital Fluency): remains a priority in all settings.
