The Professional Development and Innovation Grants (PDIG) are available to public and private schools and centres in the youth, adult and vocational training sectors. Two categories of grants are available. Please be sure to review the LCEEQ Funding Document and study the rubics that will be used for project assessment.
2017 is a transition year for PDIG so it's important you note where things have changed.
For 2017-2018 applicants, LCEEQ is now using our unified Project Funding and Application system. You can access the new PDIG application form, or by using the link to your applicant dashboard. You'll need to have an LCEEQ account in order to do so.
For 2016-2017 PDIG recipients and project managers you'll need to finish your project using the same system you used to apply at http://www.learnquebec.ca/pdig.
Professional Development Grants - focus on improving pedagogical practice. Your project should focus on the development of the teachers’ expertise resulting in improved pedagogical practices or improved curriculum tools.
Projects may be initiated by teachers, library personnel, school/centre administrators and/or school board personnel. This category is intended to provide release time necessary for a minimum of 2 teachers to collaborate on and participate in professional development activities relating to the Québec Education Program (QEP)
b) The Innovation Grants - focus on collaborative school/centre team efforts to create systemic change within the school/centre. This category is intended to provide release time necessary to pilot an innovative project designed to promote student learning and success through changes within the organization of the school, or for a particular group of students. The results should be sustainable after the initial year.
This category is intended to provide release time necessary for a minimum of 2 school team members, including at least 1 teacher to pilot an innovative project relating to the Québec Education Program (QEP). Other team members may include school administrators and other non-teaching personnel.
