The Global Network of Professional Learning Leaders (GNPLL) brings together the professional learning managers from several principals’ and vice-principals’ associations in Canada and Australia. Through our partnership we are able to identify globally relevant professional learning topics. We then develop affordable learning and networking opportunities which are open to principals and vice-principals across the world.

Past Learning Opportunities 

Lone Leaders: Rural and Remote School Leaders’ Webinar Series

The Global Network of Professional Learning Leaders is organized a series of 90-minute learning sessions. Each session provided the option to prolong for 30 minutes to continue conversations. The sessions took place in October 2021, February 2022 and April 2022 for individuals who lead in rural and geographically remote schools. During each session, participants heard from an expert on leadership in geographically remote schools and you had the opportunity to network with colleagues from Australia and Canada. Participants gained a perspective beyond their own context, had an opportunity to share strategies and to add to their professional network.
