Our facilities

Covid-19 has seen some changes at the PLI in line with government advice. Changes to the dining room and service are in place to minimise visitor movement at the PLI.  There is no on-site catering service at the PLI. 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are not accepting external bookings until further notice.

The PLI offers many learning spaces for use by the Department of Education (DoE). These spaces are ideal for hosting professional learning, special events and conference calls. Guidelines for use of the PLI for State Government agencies and Professional Associations with DoE membership can be accessed at PLI guidelines for use of the PLI.

For all booking enquiries please contact PLI@education.tas.gov.au.

The PLI offers ample free parking as shown in the video below.
