Professional learning policy update
Our item on professional learning in Issue 36 of Registration Buzz generated a lot of feedback from teachers who were concerned some of their professional learning could not be used as part of their 60 hours. The Board is developing a new policy that will provide greater flexibility for counting professional learning for a given term of registration.
This means that any professional learning undertaken in the January before your next term of registration begins will be counted as part of your 60 hours of professional learning for renewal of registration. The Teachers Portal is currently being updated to reflect this change. If you have any concerns or questions please contact us
