The Opportunity To Learn A New Language Or Improve On One
TPDL includes language study appropriate to a school's or a teacher's individual situation.  Many language teachers want to improve their own languages skills or learn a new language.  TPDL also supports teachers to do international language proficiency examinations.
 
 
TPDL Is Fully Funded By The Ministry Of Education
The Ministry of Education wants New Zealand schools to offer quality language programmes.  Most important for a quality programme is the teacher.  TPDL is the funded programme that ensures schools and teachers of languages know what makes effective learning and how to cater for that.
