Ministry of Education PLD priorities - Term 4, 2020

The Ministry of Education has refocused the national PLD priorities to support teachers and leaders, and to align with the focus on curriculum, progress and achievement.

These come into effect from Term 4, 2020, which means schools, kura and kāhui ako can apply for regionally-allocated PLD under the new priorities from this time.

The new priorities for English medium settings are:

  • cultural capability
  • local curriculum design
  • assessment for learning

The new priorities for Māori medium settings are:

  • mātauranga and te reo Māori
  • marau ā-kura
  • aromatawai

Digital fluency remains a priority in all settings.
