About The Professional Learning Team

The Professional Learning Team plans, coordinates, and delivers all courses, workshops, endorsements, and training events of Pioneer Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA). The Professional Learning Team offers regularly scheduled courses as well as on-request training events and custom-designed training to meet individual school and system needs. The Team coordinates the awarding of Professional Learning Units (PLU’s). Professional Learning services are delivered to teachers, administrators, and a variety of support personnel serving all grade levels.
High-quality professional learning, focused on research-based strategies, is essential for school improvement. Well-designed professional learning supports and increases the effectiveness of all staff members and ultimately student learning.
Pioneer Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA) is committed to building the capacity of educators in the region through courses, workshops, consortiums, and other activities. An annual needs assessment is conducted each year with our regional school systems to determine professional learning offerings. Professional learning offerings are aligned to the Georgia Leader and Teacher Performance Standards, when appropriate. Professional Learning offerings, including f2f and online courses, are posted on our online course catalog. Individuals may register for a workshop or course by accessing the course catalog.
Eight endorsements are offered for certified staff: Coaching Endorsement, ESOL, Gifted In-field, K-5 Math, K-5 Science, Online Teaching and Reading. For greater accessibility, endorsements are offered as cohorts within the school systems in our region and may be scheduled by contacting the Professional Learning team leader.
