Indonesian visitors
In early August the TRB hosted visiting delegates from three Indonesian teacher training universities. The visit was undertaken as part of their study in the Strategic Leadership Program for Higher Education Executives offered through the Knowledge Exchange International organisation.
During the visit the delegates learnt about the functions of the Board and the way it administers the provisions of the Teachers Registration and Standards Act 2004 to regulate the teaching profession in South Australia.
This session also provided interesting insight into the differences and similarities between the Indonesian and Australia’s education systems for TRB staff.
