The TLLP is an annual program that provides grants for experienced classroom teachers to undertake self-chosen, self-directed, job-embedded professional development projects to expand their knowledge, develop leadership skills and share exemplary practices.
Teachers can apply, as individuals or as teams, to undertake self-directed projects with their own unique learning and sharing activities. https://spark.adobe.com/page/9LQZ5/
WHO CAN APPLY?
Experienced teachers from all Ontario publicly funded school boards, school authorities and provincial schools who have chosen to remain in the classroom can apply to lead a TLLP project. Groups must be teacher-led but may include other educational workers, such as education assistants, early childhood educators, board consultants and occasional teachers.
HOW CAN I APPLY?
The TLLP application form, important program guidelines, timelines and frequently asked questions are available on TeachOntario’s TLLP/PKE page. Important resources are also available on the ministry’s TLLP website. There, you can also access tips and ideas on how to complete the application form.
Completed project proposal/applications are submitted to your school board in November. A school board committee comprised of federation representatives and board staff will review all proposals and will identify two-three (depending on the size of your board) to recommend to the Ministry.
In February, a provincial Teacher Learning and Leadership Committee makes the final selection decisions.
