Around 108 respondents were involved in this research. Data were collected using questionnaire form that measured PLC and EE respectively. PLC Practices were measured with 42 items and EE Level with 12 items.

Analysis was done using descriptive and inferential statistic of T-test, Pearson Correlation and Regression. The result of the data analysis showed that PLC Practices and EE Level among the form six educators was moderately high. Pearson Correlation analysis showed that there was a significant relation between the PLC Practices and EE Level (r=0.662, k<0.01), where the relation was positive and average. The result of the independent T-test sample showed that there was no significant difference of PLC Practices according to gender (t=0.518, k>0.05). Parallel to PLC Practices, the EE Level independent T-test sample too showed insignificant difference where the EE Level score was (t=1.188, k>0.05), in a sense that both male and female were indifference. This implies that demographic factor such as gender did not show significant difference to the PLC Practices and EE Level.
