What you are going to learn

ECE Leaders Professional Learning Groups

In their recent communications about the expectations for leaders with regards to their own professional growth cycles, the Teaching Council made clear that leaders should be engaged in professional learning groups (PLG).

The purpose of such a group is to support its members to learn with and alongside others, giving and receiving feedback, sharing ideas and engaging in collaborative problem solving to strengthen the leadership practice of all.

Whether you are part of an existing network of leaders or would like to join one of our PLGs, this programme will assist you to identify relevant and challenging learning goals for yourself and to work productively towards them with the support of a skilled facilitator and the other leaders in the group.
Being part of a PLG will also solve an issue that many leaders face – that of who can provide your annual summary statement and endorse your application for the renewal of your practicing certificate. One of your group members will be able to do this for you.

Your group of approximately 10 - 15 leaders will meet 4 times a year via zoom. We will negotiate days and times with group members so that whatever your schedule we will find something that works for you.

Members Club is now open!
