Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Professional Development is focused on in-depth training (Core Training) and continuing education (Ongoing Training). By participating in these trainings, educators have the opportunity to increase their depth of content knowledge, skills and pedagogy related to specific PLTW courses instruction.
PLTW's Core Training (CT) is an intensive and immersive in-person training experience held at University of South Carolina (or another PLTW Affiliate University). During CT, teachers are immersed in course-specific curriculm, complete hands-on activities, projects and problems with a strong focus on pedagogy. Teachers must successfully pass CT for every PLTW course they wish to implement and instruct.
