Sharp, Kinane Limited

The MoE has extended TA PLD until December 2024.  

Every TA had access to $1000 worth of PLD from accredited providers in 2023. This extension from the MoE means that TA’s can now spend their balance up until December 2024. In addition, if a TA’s PLD balance does not have enough funds left, the school concerned can top up the balance in negotiation with the PLD provider.
