All support materials for the online PLD application system can be found in Help and user guides

If you identify any issues with the online PLD system, please let us know by emailing

Managing existing PLD allocations

If you have a PLD allocation that began before term 1 2020 and are using the PLD Journal spreadsheet, continue to use this until you have completed your PLD journey and the Final Report is submitted.

Please send PLD Journals to and your regional offices for processing.

If your school, kura, Kāhui Ako, or cluster has been allocated PLD support by the Ministry of Education, you can browse the database to find the facilitator(s) who might be the right fit for your PLD allocation.
