Teacher Certification Australia


Teacher Certification Australia is committed to strengthening teachers’ understanding of the Proficient, Highly Accomplished and Lead descriptors in the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST). Research to Practice workshops provide further support for teachers to work with the APST and enhance teachers’ access to research-based planning activities. Workshops lead teachers to plan within frameworks developed by and exclusive to Teacher Certification Australia. The workshops and online courses wholly align with all other published guidelines.

Teacher Certification Australia offers workshops and online courses that introduce innovative ideas for teaching and develop teachers’ base knowledge of the Proficient, Highly Accomplished and Lead Standard Descriptors. The workshops and online courses provide seamless, step-by-step processes that guide teachers’ developing understanding of these top three career stages.

Teacher Certification Australia was founded by Caroline Paget. Caroline is certified at Lead and has 20 years’ experience as a secondary school educator and four years’ experience as the Lecturer for teaching methods course groups at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).

Caroline is a highly experienced teacher, having taught in a range of communities, including in remote and inner-city schools, a school with a majority of Aboriginal students and in a K-12 setting. Caroline is a Premier’s Teacher Scholarship recipient, which enabled her to study creative teaching strategies in the USA.

Caroline has been employed by Education Interactive, Inner West Council and the NSW Department of Education, to write curriculum materials for schools. Caroline has completed the University of NSW Graduate Certificate of Gifted Education (COGE).

Caroline has eight years of experience leading teaching and learning and has focused her practice on developing procedures that support teachers to achieve established requirements, as they pertain to student learning outcomes.

Caroline’s accreditation experience includes working on a panel assessing initial teacher education programs. She has been involved in discussions with two international delegations visiting Australia, providing her insights and expertise on certification, to national leaders, and sharing her experience of becoming certified at Lead. Caroline is an external assessor, was a member of the AITSL HALT Network Steering Committee and has been employed by NESA to work on manuals for Highly Accomplished and Lead.
