We are committed to enabling new educators to make the best start in their teaching careers. This includes reduced face-to-face hours of up to 1 hour 30 mins in the first year and 30 mins in years 2 and 3 to facilitate enhanced support and mentoring. From 2020, all new educators will also participate in a five-day induction program prior to commencing the school year.
As a leading learning organisation, we are committed to continuing professional learning and development to build and support quality teaching. This is achieved through individual performance and development plans, aligned to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and school-based Professional Learning Community Programs. This range of programs is aimed to build our teachers’ skills and capacity to support their students’ learning needs in the classroom, as well as their own teaching practice.
