Online Workshops

The SPA Team has recently begun offering Online PD to schools. This allows for more flexibility and is a more time and cost efficient option for many schools. We use software called "Google Meet", which, at no cost to your school, enables a video link up with all involved parties. We are also able to share (live) computer screens. We can accommodate up to 25 participants, each with their own computers.

The SPA staff are offering 2 hour online sessions with each of our PD consultants. The session times are:

  • 9.00am – 11.00am
  • 12.00pm – 2pm
  • 3:30pm – 5:30pm

*There is some degree of flexibility in session times.

If any of the following Online PD’s interest you, feel free to email
