Enhancing Teacher Registration in South Australia - Legislative Reform
Teachers registration ensures a professional quality standard is applied to all teachers and verifies a person as a qualified teaching professional. The Teachers Registration and Standards Act 2004 (the Act), legislates how the Board oversees and promotes registration and the teaching profession in South Australia.
Since the Act began operation in 2005, teacher registration within Australia has undergone various changes at both state and national level. In response to these changes, the Minister for Education, Mr John Gardner MP will shortly be releasing a discussion paper ‘Enhancing Teacher Registration in South Australia’. The consultation paper outlines some of the main features of the Act, issues associated with its operation and some suggestions for change. Read the paper here.
How can you get involved?
We are seeking stakeholder and community feedback by 31 May 2019.
