Why language teachers nationwide choose tplt for their professional development

Teachers Are Supported By An Experienced In-School Support Facilitator
Teachers are visited once a term for lesson observations and evidence-based learning conversations.  These Support Facilitators help the teachers see what the students are really doing.
TPLT Is A Year Long Programme Where Teachers See The Improvements To Student Learning
Teachers report that TPLT has revolutionised their teaching and has had a marked positive impact on student motivation and retention in learning languages.
The Opportunity To Learn A New Language Or Improve On One
TPLT includes language study appropriate to a school's or a teacher's individual situation.  Many language teachers want to improve their own languages skills or learn a new language.  TPLT also supports teachers to do international language proficiency examinations.
TPLT Is Fully Funded By The Ministry Of Education
The Ministry of Education wants New Zealand schools to offer quality language programmes.  Most important for a quality programme is the teacher.  TPLT is the funded programme that ensures schools and teachers of languages know what makes effective learning and how to cater for that.
