Each module consists of a four-week PLD course starting with a workshop, delivered face-to-face or by video conference.

This is followed by an online community of professional learning. Participants will have the opportunity to practise and reflect on the new learning and exchange experiences and ideas with each other and the facilitator.

Participants can collect evidence of participation and engagement in their PLD Portfolio or Kete.

They can receive a digital badge, or micro-credential, for participation in each of the three components and a ‘gold badge’ if all three badges are collected.
