Consultancy in planning professional learning for your school

The Institute for Professional Learning offers a free consultancy service to support you to plan and deliver the most effective professional learning to meet the needs of your staff.


As an educator, my goal is to develop positive, collaborative cultures to meet the needs of students and a high-quality professional approach by staff that delivers on strong community expectations. I am committed to public education, my profession and have a personal willingness to learn and continually develop through knowledge, growth and experience.

I am an educational leader with more than 25 years of experience in the leadership of significant teaching and educational development across Western Australia. I have a strong record in achieving outstanding outcomes across the Department of Education and have demonstrated successful skills in school improvement, staff development and professional learning. I have been publically recognised for my success in working with schools, teachers and principals. My professional focus has been on developing the leadership capability of school leaders. I have used evidence-based practices, international and national research and designed and influenced models of professional learning for support staff, teachers, aspirant, beginning and experienced educational leaders.

In 2013, I was appointed advisor with the Principals’ Advisory Team working with 200 newly appointed principals across Western Australia. My experiences in this role led me to my current position as the Director, Institute for Professional Learning.

Contact Peter Glendenning, Director, Institute for Professional Learning, to be referred to the consultant principal or professional learning coordinator most aligned with your school’s professional learning needs.
