We offer FREE PD/info sessions around NZ because we believe ALL teachers deserve up-to-date information, more options, solutions to real problems and a chance to see what is being developed.  We want to use our experience to "pay it forward".  The schedule for the 2018 Term One & Two two-hour professional development sessions is coming soon and we are already looking forward to meeting many of you again and some new faces. To register for these limited space session,  just email or call with names or scroll down to see how you can use our NEW ZOOM sessions!                  


Supported Learning focused series

Screen Shot 2014-10-16 at 1.12.41 pm

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 is introducing TWO new exciting and flexible PD opportunities to meet your needs and answer your questions.  The Take 5min series will be emailed out regularly and the ZOOM video conference is offered to ALL New Zealand schools and organisations for one free PD/info session.
