Sydney School of Education and Social Work's Office of Professional Learning provides short courses that address the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership's decriptors for Proficient Teacher and Highly Accomplished Teacher.
Some of our professional development courses are offered as a combination of face-to-face classes at host schools with online participation and assignments. These include:
If you successfully complete both modules of a two-module course you may choose to have your work assessed for accreditation towards a Master of Education.
We can tailor programs and courses specifically to your school's needs and deliver them at your workplace. Modules can be adapted for delivery at staff-development days and in other customised modes.
