What you are going to learn

Professional growth cycle groups for NZ registered teachers

  • Do you often feel like your PGC goals gather cobwebs and you don't have the support you need to stretch yourself as a registered teacher?
  • Do you sometimes feel stale in your practice, and you know you would benefit from being able to network with other passionate ECE teachers?
Let’s face it, ECE is founded on a strong value for socio cultural learning. And it really is no different for us as adults. Our learning is deeper and more effective when we engage with others in groups.

For many ECE services, we feel strongly that we would like to be supporting our teachers better in their professional growth cycles. But it is so often one of those tasks that falls to the end of the pile for busy leaders. And this can lead to a less than robust PGC process for teachers.

That’s why Enspirement in partnership with Barbara Watson (PhD) has created “Professional Growth Cycle groups” for fully certificated teachers. 

This is an online programme intended to support you to actively engage in your professional growth cycles in ways that maximise collaboration and minimise administrative burden on your professional leader.
These group sessions are designed to complement your in centre PGC processes, giving you the opportunity to network,  and learn with and from others outside of your own centre.

You will be invited to join a PGC group of approximately 20 according to the focus of your PGC inquiry/goals. Each cohort will take part in four online sessions of 1.5 hours over the year to share common issues of practice, engage in collaborative problem-solving and celebrate practice and outcome successes. These processes will be facilitated by our experienced mentor/facilitator, Barbara Watson (PhD). 

Barbara will also support your professional learning, both within the session and by recommending further resources for exploration to help grow your professional practice and meet your PGC goals.
