Working with you

Our team is committed to working collaboratively with leaders and teachers to co-construct the professional learning and development programmes, based on a comprehensive assessment of strengths and needs. The IPL offers a wide range of professional learning opportunities tailored to the specific needs of educators and individual learning settings. From in-school assistance through to the opportunity to undertake further professional qualifications IPL offers wide-ranging opportunities for further career enhancement.


We provide high quality professional learning opportunities across and beyond the education sector to grow the capacity of educators to develop their practice. We believe professional learning should be research based, culturally responsive and benefit all learners.

The IPL supports professional practice that:

  • Makes a positive difference with individuals, organisations and society
  • Creates and sustains social and economic wellbeing, and
  • Positions New Zealand as a global leader in innovation and change.
