About our Professional Development Training Calendar

Whether you’re an early childhood educator, or a professional in the community or business sector, you may find many of professional development training workshops useful. Our professionald development workshops and training sessions cover a wide range of areas. We primarily focus on providing training for early childhood educators and individuals working in the child care and education sector, meeting National Quality Standards and enabling educators to engage in best practice. However, many of our training workshops also cater to the broader community and can be useful for individuals from any industry.

Our methodology focuses on the individual, providing a variety of learning opportunities, inspiring participants to reach their full potential, utilising the extensive and contemporary experience of our team through the provision of effective teaching and learning strategies. Our annual professional development training calendar (PD Calendar) of events and workshops usually comprises a blend of workshops facilitated by our CPLE (Centre of Professional Learning and Education – RTO 88148) team and those facilitated by external providers around Canberra.
