Can I trade-in old resources?

Yes. PLD provides a 20% discount on the revised version of the resources you would like to trade-in. Please carefully follow the steps below to ensure that you complete this form accurately.

Is it Necessary to Trade in Programs?
At any point in time, you can check on how your school editions compare with PLD current editions by selecting PREVIEW BOOK
In this example using the PREVIEW BOOK function you can view editions in the school and compare with the current PLD edition
PLD will update programs. This occurs because the evidence-based has changed, but also from the PLD consultancy observing in schools when prograsm are poorly implemented, this also forms the basis of upgrading the content or layouts.

Step 2. Identify any titles that have gone missing and need to be replaced.
Step 3. Identify any titles you require single or multiple copies of.
Step 4. Identify any titles you would like to trade/upgrade.

Upon receipt of this form (i.e. the list of items that are to be traded in and their replacements) a quote can be supplied. Once the quote is accepted, please forward a purchase order number or credit card details, and the ‘trade-in’ will be processed. To benefit from this discount, the office must receive the ‘trade-in’ resource or be provided with evidence of it’s destruction prior to releasing the new resource.

How to Return the Programs?

Step 1: Arrange for the return of the older resources

Option 1: Return all trade-in items to PLD, addressed to: PLD Literacy, ATTN: TRADE-INS, 116 Parry Street, Perth WA 6000.
Option 2: Remove the covers of trade-in items and post these back to the PLD office. Why remove the covers? By removing the covers, teaching staff still can use the books, while waiting for the replacements. By returning the covers, this reduces the postage costs involved in the return of the items. Importantly the older editions (in their damaged cover-less format) will then likely be removed from circulation, upon the delivery of the new items.

Step 2: New replacement items are posted out from the PLD office upon receipt of the covers or full resource returns. Please note that the trade-in discount can be applied to the entire PLD range, with the exception of the Decodable Home and Targeted Group Reading Books, R.I.C. Publications and Wikki-Stix sets.
