LFIN Professional Learning Programme (PLP) is an extended and profound learning experience that immerses members in a model of inquiry and problem-based learning.

Staff members work collaboratively to gain knowledge to solve significant student learning problems in their schools. We seek to understand individual members' needs and then assist them in meeting objectives through a collaborative learning environment and with the support of experienced coaches. The training programme comprises of Online Workshops, Webinars, Staff Exchange with partner schools, eLearning and finding solutions to not only teach but learn and help the school deliver better. The PLP is based on the philosophy of 'Schools Can Change', developed by Lick, Clauset and Murphy. The Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) take charge of their own learning by establishing Whole-Faculty Study Groups (WFSGs) and Action Teams. 

The Three-Year Certificate Programme: Level 1 - (11 Sessions); Level 2 - (13 Sessions); and Level 3 - (15 Sessions). The sessions prescribed are minimum, the educators must divide their time between structured training sessions and self-directed professional learning. The teachers voluntarily put in extra time and effort, which is a part of their leisure time.

Outcome and Certification: The educators are recognised for their effort with a Certificate Of Appreciation at each level, and a Gold Badge on completion of the three levels. The PLP offers a great challenge and rewards the educators for the extra effort, beyond the call of the duty. The Certificates are awarded at the Graduation Ceremony/Annual Day of the school.
