We facilitate intelligent conversations for intelligent people.
We’re here for the ready, the open and the venturesome. As proud winners of the National 2020 Change Maker Award, get ready for something unexpected…. We can’t wait to see you to continue the magic!
While we specialise in bespoke solutions, PunkPD has been inundated with requests to create and host open access courses in recent years. In response, we created a suite that continues to grow as we respond to your requests.
Designed with passion, grounded in contemporary and future-focused research, we facilitate with our unique Group Coaching Methodology that you have come to know and love so that your learning needs remain front and centre!
At PunkPD, our mission is to ‘transform potential into capability’.
Simply put, this means we aim to make life easier for people.
A beautiful way we’ve decided to do this is to offer multiple models of professional development so people can choose the model that works best for their needs and preferences.
Lovingly, we’ve called our professional development models:
