All the resources available as part of the teacher Professional Learning are designed to suit needs for both primary and secondary staff.

What format do the articles come in? How will I share these with parents and others?

Each article is displayed as a blog on our website. It can also be downloaded as a PDF or a text file, to share with your parent community via your school newsletter, school website, Facebook page, or even as individual handouts to parents with a particular issue or concern.

How is the Helping Teachers Professional Learning delivered?

Members can choose to undertake various modules to suit their needs using the videos and handouts. The modules can be taken individually or as part of a group. Each module consists of a handout for teacher reading, a workshop activity with presenter instructions, and a video for group or individual viewing. There are also specific online programs specifically designed for graduate teachers, classroom teachers or school leaders.

What other support will I receive?
