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 900 NZ schools using Supporting Learning Resources by offering easy-to-use, customised online PDL sessions.

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.
