Professional Learning can be a great way to build knowledge, skills and confidence around inclusion. With the wide variety of professional learning opportunities available including conferences, webinars, workshops and other online forums, it can be difficult to choose which opportunities to invest in. When choosing professional learning sessions for yourself and your team, consider the following questions:

  • Have you identified any specific professional learning needs in your QIP?
    How will the knowledge gained be implemented in your program and practices?
    What opportunities will be available for the knowledge, skills and ideas to be shared with other team members?

  • Is there a professional learning opportunity available that will ‘stretch’ team thinking and challenge ideas and practice?

This page will provide links to different professional learning opportunities that are available throughout Queensland, and relevant inter-state conferences.
