Teacher Development Aotearoa

Teacher Development Aotearoa is a not-for-profit organisation promoting and supporting kaiako and teacher professional learning and development (PLD). We embrace and celebrate difference, we believe in cross-sector collaboration and connection, and we promote the delivery of quality PLD ‘for kaiako, by kaiako’.

We are contracted by the Ministry of Education to lead, coordinate and support the Networks of Expertise (NEX) in our role as the Network Hub, and we sponsor and administer kaiako and teacher-led PLD that offers the opportunity to network and develop capability.

Teacher Development Aotearoa proudly partners with the Ministry of Education and teacher unions NZEI and PTTA.
