Teacher Learning and Leadership Program

OTF 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 TLLP logodevelopment 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.

Two-Day Training Session: Annually, OTF and Affiliate staff run a two-day training session, 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.

Summit:  To follow up, OTF organizes a culminating summit where teachers share their completed projects. Held in November each year, the Sharing the Learning Summit is always a great success.
