The development of the Centre for Professional Learning has been funded by the NSW Teachers Federation to provide high quality professional training and development for teachers in NSW government schools. The Journal of Professional Learning (JPL) is an online professional journal that has been established as an adjunct to the work of the CPL.
All courses and conferences have full accreditation from the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards NSW (BOSTES) and the support of the DoE.
The CPL is also engaging in joint professional activities with the BOSTES. Kathy Deacon is the Director of the CPL. Carly Boreland is the Assistant Director of the CPL and Editor of the JPL. Alison Thorpe and Joanne Fellas provide administrative and logistical support. The resources and facilities of the NSW Teachers Federation are also deployed in support of the CPL.
