Professional Learning and Development at the BCPVPA involves initiatives and objectives to build capacity and leadership for principals and vice-principals. The combined work of the BCPVPA staff, its Professional Development and Development representatives and committee members determine the most effective ways to deliver these initiatives.

The BCPVPA Professional Learning and Development team has developed a wide-ranging group of workshops which run from 90 minutes to two half-days and full days. The workshops directly support the Leadership Standards for Principals and Vice-Principals in British Columbia and augment quality leadership.
