We provide professional learning support for teachers of all languages in Years 1-13.

We encourage teachers and middle leaders in charge of the Learning Languages to consult with their principal about this opportunity. Please also contact our Learning Languages facilitator, Jeni Lemberg, if you need help in preparing the PLD proposal. Find out more about centrally funded PLD.
