DECAL’s Professional Learning Unit seeks to ensure early care and education professionals have opportunities to participate in high-quality training that provides them with knowledge and skills they can immediately apply in their classrooms. Meaningful professional learning opportunities have a positive impact on classroom practice which, in turn, benefits Georgia’s children.
In order to ensure high-quality training, the Professional Learning Unit oversees the Georgia Professional Development System, Georgia Training Approval, and the DECAL Scholars program. Other Professional Learning initiatives include developing training opportunities in the following areas: Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards, Professional Learning Community Facilitation, Foundations of Coaching, and WIDA Early Years.
