The Teacher Learning & Leadership Program (TLLP)

tllp-smThe 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. 


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.


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.
