The International Forum of Teacher Regulatory Authorities (IFTRA)
International delegates from a range of locations including Africa, the UK, North America, Europe, and Australasia met in June to discuss mutual issues and challenges related to the regulation and promotion of the teaching profession. Carmel Kerin and Peter Lind represented South Australia. 
Topics ranged from reforms in initial teacher education, induction and teachers’ professional learning frameworks as well as the challenges relating to reciprocity and mutual recognition across a range of international jurisdictions.Of particular note was Right Touch Regulation, a presentation and seminar by Harry Cayton, Chief Executive of the Professional Standards Authority, UK.
These international networks enable us to assist teachers from South Australia working overseas, facilitate the movement of international teachers seeking to work in South Australia and allow the Board to better benchmark itself against best international practice.
