Professional Learning Communities at Work®

Building a PLC at Work® is increasingly recognised as the most powerful strategy for sustained, substantive school improvement

The Professional Learning Communities at Work® process is increasingly recognised as the most powerful strategy for sustained, substantive school improvement. It provides educators and their teams with the knowledge and tools needed to implement collaborative processes that genuinely bring high levels of learning to all students.

The PLC at Work® process supports schools to align all their efforts through a relentless focus on learning, a collaborative culture and a results orientation. The process operates under the assumption that the key to improved learning for students is continuous, job-embedded learning for educators through the work they do in collaborative teams.
