Institute of Professional Learning


The Institute of Professional Learning (IPL) provides career professional development for educators and staff within the North Coast Region.

The Institute of Professional Learning is aligned with the Department of Education’s key priorities and initiatives with a major emphasis on improving outcomes for students. A key focus is building the capacity of our leaders through professional development and other capability building opportunities for senior leaders and staff.

There are a range of programs in leadership, pedagogy, technology and business to help build skills within the school and region.

Principals, Deputies, Heads of Departments, Teachers, Business Service Managers, support staff and more are able to find and enrol in programs to help advance their skills.​

Although our major location is at the IPL Centre based on the grounds of the University of the Sunshine Coast, programs are also held in a variety of locations throughout North Coast Region.
