The SABES Program Support PD Center is a project of the US Division at World Education, Inc. in Boston, MA. Our goal is to work in creative and responsive ways to provide professional development according to our system’s High Quality Professional Development (HQPD) Standards. These HQPD Standards and our work are designed to build our collective capacity to maximize opportunities for the adult learners we serve.

Please see our FY22 PD Catalog for information on the PD planned to support you in the following nine priority areas:

We are pleased to be authorized to issue Professional Development Points (PDPs). Please contact if you are interested in more information about PDPs for eligible professional development offerings.
