Highlights

Teacher Learning & Leadership Program

The Teacher Learning and Leadership Program (TLLP) is an annual project-based professional learning opportunity for experienced classroom teachers. Through the TLLP, the Ministry of Education has, for the past decade, supported hundreds of teacher-led projects across the province. The program funds proposals from classroom teachers who seek a peer leadership role in curriculum, instructional practice or supporting other teachers.

Goals:

  • Create and support opportunities for teacher professional learning
  • Foster teacher leadership
  • Facilitate the sharing of exemplary practice with others for the broader benefit of Ontario’s students

There has been no communication to school boards from the Ministry regarding requests for proposals for Teacher Learning and Leadership Program (TLLP) for 2019-2020. While this leaves the future of TLLPs uncertain, the WCDSB will continue to support current TLLPs and search for ways in which these collaborative endeavours align with other initiatives and priorities.
