The Multicultural Playwright Program Teacher Professional Learning (TPL) is a registered professional learning course which complements the Multicultural Playwright Program Student Workshops. The TPL is run prior to the student workshops.

The TPL will help you develop high-level skills in making performance works, engaging in creative practices and exploring dramatic contexts for students with EAL/D and refugee backgrounds.

Following the one day TPL workshop, you will be invited to select a time for a mentor to visit your school for a 2 hour session where they will assist you with the implementation of strategies discussed at your TPL workshop. For more details, download the the Information Package (when available).
