Meeting the Standards: Induction for Early Career Teachers

4 Day Program

back to Programs

Induction is a responsibility shared across the teaching profession. It is everyone’s responsibility to assist graduates to make the transition to the Proficient career stage in the Standards. Within that broad expectation the Professional Learning Institute plays a specific role.

This four day program will explore the practice of teaching through the focus areas of the Standards and include current research about effective learning and teaching, and how to practically implement strategies in the classroom.

Early career teachers will be encouraged to become active participants in their profession, taking responsibility for their own learning, and seeking and using collegial advice and evidence to improve their practice.

  • Describe current practice using the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers moving from the Graduate to Proficient career stages;
  • Promote continuous professional growth by encouraging early career teachers to reflect on their practice and understand their impact on their students;
  • Promote the use of practice-focused mentoring by one or more expert colleagues to support the early career teacher’s growth and impact, and further develop their professional knowledge and practice; and
  • Provide knowledge and understanding of the Change of Registration Category process.
