New measures for quality teaching in New South Wales schools

Carmel Tebbutt
This week Curriculum Leadership publishes a statement by The Hon Carmel Tebbutt MP, Minister for Education and Training, New South Wales. The New South Wales Government is committed to having the highest quality teachers in our schools and to ensuring that every student is taught by engaged, up-to-date and professional teachers. Ongoing learning is critical for professions such as teaching. You simply cannot switch off when you leave university. That is why it will be mandatory from next year for all new teachers in the State to undertake professional development courses. Teachers entering the work force for the first time will be required to spend a minimum of 100 hours over five years doing courses agreed with their principal.
