Teacher Certification Australia


Teacher Certification Australia promotes e-booklets written by Highly Accomplished and Lead educators. The e-booklets are written to build understanding of teaching practices that relate to Proficient, Highly Accomplished and Lead in the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST).

Teacher Certification Australia promotes e-booklets on teaching practices that respond to research and which Highly Accomplished and Lead teachers have developed in unique and innovative ways within an educational setting. The e-booklets outline the work of Highly Accomplished and Lead educators in implementing the findings of research in their setting.

Teacher Certification Australia’s (TCA) online courses and workshops are no longer available. TCA thanks participants in its courses, however, has decided that e-booklets are a more effective means of supporting teachers to learn about the APST, its links to research on how to teach, Proficient teaching and Highly Accomplished / Lead certification. TCA has not developed digital participant books, as previously advertised, due to file size constraints and has decided to turn all of the learning materials into e-booklets. The e-booklets are in development. The first Online Bytes e-booklet is now available (see the Online Bytes webpage).

Teacher Certification Australia also connects schools with Highly Accomplished and Lead educators who supply e-consulting services.

Quotes from around the world:

“The Lead Practitioner (LP) programme celebrates and motivates great teachers on an individual basis, especially ones who lead others to develop themselves.” – The Schools, Students and Teachers network (SSAT).

“Digging into the National Board standards and certification process was a transformative experience for me and my teaching practice.” – Peggy Brookins, NBCT, former President and CEO of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
