is an active participant in the Teacher Learning and Leadership
Program (TLLP), an initiative of the Ministry of Education.
The program provides funding to experienced teachers for
professional development and leadership enhancement experiences
and for sharing their learning with others. The applications
for funding are considered by the Teacher Professional Learning
Committee, consisting of representatives from the federations
and the Ministry of Education.
Each year, OTF and Affiliate staff run a two-day training session, entitled Leadership Skills for Classroom Teachers. Designed by OTF with input from the Affiliates, the session assists those teachers
whose proposals have been selected for TLLP funding to develop
the skills needed to effectively manage their learning projects
and to share their learning with others.
To follow up, OTF organizes a culminating summit for teachers in the TLLP. Held in November each year, the Sharing the Learning Summit is always a great success.
For more information on the TLLP, check out the Ministry
or contact OTF by Email.
