MyPL registered course application

The department's MyPL system streamlines the administrative processes of planning, managing and recording professional development (PD) for teachers.

It allows:

  • searching of advertised PD courses and activities across the department
  • enrolment by teachers into PD courses and activities
  • maintenance of teacher PD records within the department
  • the transfer of teacher completion records for NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) registered PD courses to NESA’s electronic time and attendance management system (eTAMS)
  • completion and approval of a NESA registered PD course application
  • the creation of a range of PD activities.

The MyPL system serves different purposes in the department. It is an integrated system that permits learning authors to develop PD courses and activities, advertise them and manage their delivery. It also enables the NESA registered PD course application approval process.
