Early Childhood Reference Group – Australian Professional Standards for Teachers
The Board’s Early Childhood Reference Group hosted a workshop on 21 August to consider the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) in the context of early childhood teachers. A number of early childhood experts from across the sector worked collaboratively, debating and discussing the current standards and descriptors.
A summary paper will be produced with findings from the workshop to further enhance the APST for early childhood teachers and to gain a better understanding of how the next iteration of the Standards might be inclusive of all teachers.
