​​​About Us

The Professional Learning Institute (PLI) develops, brokers and conducts professional learning programs across the Department of Education: professional learning for all staff is fundamental to both school and organisational improvement.


Professional learning to build the capacity of all our staff supports our Learners First vision of a highly skilled, innovative and inspired workforce.

There is something for everyone in the 2017 program offerings and the PLI will continue to expand to meet the changing needs of our department and our people – ensuring we both continue to grow and strive for excellence.

Relationships and collaboration are vitally important to us, and program offerings are informed by consultation, feedback, data and reflection.

We are increasingly reaching and connecting with our clients through technology, in anywhere, anytime learning.

Our programs are informed by contemporary research, and partnerships have been formed with universities across Australia. Pathways are also being developed to allow participants in PLI programs to articulate into university and TAFE courses.

It’s all about giving you, our clients, the professional learning you need, delivered how you want it, to ensure we are making a difference.
