Teacher FastTrack is an online program delivered by Adam Voigt (Real Schools) designed to transform and accelerate teaching practice and classroom engagement.

This 12 month program of flipped professional learning is designed as ten online modules relevant for new and experienced teachers. The program supports teachers seeking to further develop, improve and enhance the effectiveness of:

  • their classroom learning environment
  • classroom culture and climate
  • student behaviour management skills
  • student engagement with learning
  • face-to-face interactions between teachers and individual students and between teachers and their classes.

To take part in this professional learning, participants will need a school-based mentor.

Real Schools describes this opportunity as enabling teachers to participate in a long-term improvement cycle linked to genuine support, to the school’s strategic objectives and to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

  • reflect on practice and use evidence and data to inform ongoing improvement.
