Supporting Learning believe ALL teachers deserve up-to-date information, more options, solutions to real problems and a chance to see what is being developed. SLR wants to share our knowledge and experience of over 800 NZ schools using Supporting Learning Resources by offering easy-to-use, customised online PDL sessions.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT LEARNING
Supported Learning focused series
We often focus on our students needs and put our own professional development needs to one side. We are told "there's no more PD money, no relief budget, there are more important initiatives to focus on"... but we think YOU are important and it is worth US spending our own PD money on.
SUPPORTING LEARNING has TWO exciting and flexible PD opportunities to meet your needs and answer your questions. The Take 5min series will be emailed out regularly in 2019 and the ZOOM video conference is offered to ALL New Zealand schools and organisations for free PD/info session.

Our successful five year 'no charge' regional sessions commitment was completed in July 2018. SLR invested over $150 000 towards nationwide PDL, free resources and building networks with schools who wanted to explore more "Success for ALL" options.
Our Directors met over 1500 educators around NZ, moving around regions to meet dedicated and innovative educations and hear what you need. Your suggestions helped direct all our new developments. From 2019, sessions will be customised and on demand.
In response to your requests, for the remainder of 2018 we will offer quick, customised video or audio conferences that will focus on what YOU and your learners need ... >
