Our specialist team, lead by Directors Kathy Walker and Shona Bass, provide a wide variety of professional development opportunities and resources that provide the theoretical platform alongside the practical strategies to develop and enhance the skills educators need for successful education in the 21st Century.  

Excellence in teaching and learning demands an extensive range of skills including rigorous teaching and learning practice along side the skills of effective communication, leadership, conflict resolution and engaging parents. We work with school communities (leaders, educators and parents) across Australia and Internationally on an extensive suite of professional learning sessions.  Our professional learning brochure for primary educators provides a snapshot of professional learning opportunities such as:

Katie and I have implemented strategies in our class room and presented to the early years what we learnt on the day. I really enjoyed the presentation and would like to learn more."
