Learning Library: Professional Growth Cycle

We are on a mission at ECE Learning Unlimited to help early childhood educators and leaders be the best. We have lifted the load for busy early childhood educators, by doing the research for you and curating a collection of resources on a range of common ECE topics into one place - The ECELU Learning Library.

Children deserve nothing less!

Understanding and developing your professional growth cycle

In this learning library we explore what makes a robust professional growth cycle, how to create a PGC system, and how to track your learning through a PGC. 
A Professional Growth Cycle focuses on how teachers use and meet Our Code, Our Standards | Ngā Tikanga Matatika, Ngā Paerewa in their everyday practice.

For registered teachers (provisionally certificated and fully certificated) this is the mechanism which is used in early childhood services to form the basis for teacher certification endorsement. This is a high trust model with reduced compliance and the burden of "proving" that teachers meet the standards for the profession.

A cycle of professional growth for teachers takes a holistic approach where using and meeting the Standards | Ngā Paerewa is embedded in everyday teaching. This reinforces the status of professional learning as a means to ensure our profession is future-focused and innovative in support of effective teaching for all learners.
