The aim of the PLC process was to improve pedagogical practice, thereby fostering a culture of professional excellence in schools and across the system. A school becomes a PLC when the Professional Learning Teams (PLTs) work towards the realisation of articulated PLC goals, embodied in the 3 Big Ideas, 4 Critical Questions and 5 Dimensions for Effective PLCs, and learn together as a community.
