About Us
plc journey_for landing page

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. 

You may contact us at, with '[PLC] Nature of Query' in the subject header.


Thank you for joining us at 3rd SSD Networking Session where we shared the Enhanced Guide to Effective PLCs and the tools for review. Check out the photos from the event below.
