Empowering School Leaders and Teachers to drive practice and capacity - Integrating The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) in improving teaching and school capacity.
This professional learning workshop will be held over two days in May 2020. Day 1 and 2 are stand-alone events and attendees can choose to attend one, some or all of the days provided.
Day 1: 11 May 2020
Day 2: 12 May 2020
The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers describe the knowledge, skills and understanding expected of competent and effective teachers. This professional learning program focuses on strategic, visionary and hands-on approaches to embedding the standards to esteem our teachers and profession; build professional growth; facilitate collaboration and coherence; create mentors and develop instructional leaders. The learning will explore ways to plan and implement programs, evaluations and organisation to improve and share practice.
A similar program will be available in Brisbane, Queensland in May 2020. Details to be announced shortly.
