About the Online Professional Standards Modules

These online modules provide teachers with essential professional learning in the Professional Standards, self-reflection, self-inquiry, discussions with colleagues, and to assist teachers to receive feedback on their teaching practice.

The suite of modules contains professional learning in relation to the following:

  • Module 1: The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APSTs)
  • Module 2: Evidencing Practice
  • Module 3: Change of Registration Category Process.

The modules were funded by the Department of Education and jointly developed by the Professional Learning Institute (PLI) and the Teachers Registration Board of Tasmania (TRB).

What is in the modules?

The modules focus on the Standards at the Proficient Career Stage and underpin the process for gaining Full Registration.

Each module takes around an hour to complete.
