Who we are

The NSW Teachers Federation's (Federation) Centre for Professional Learning (CPL) provides high quality professional development for Federation members working in school based and non-school based teaching positions. The courses and conferences aim to provide practical, tested and well researched approaches to pedagogical and curriculum issues that teachers face every day at the school level.
