Employment benefits

Professional Development

Our community of practice requires teachers and educators to engage in an evolving spiral of professional and personal development where pedagogy is refined and new ideas, theories and innovations are explored. Through informed interactions, research and professional dialogue, teachers determine the best possible solutions to enhance their practice and children’s learning, and support the development of section goals and objectives.

We actively encourage staff to seek further knowledge through professional enquiry, research, professional development workshops, conferences, seminars, mentoring, and self reflection. We provide a generous training and development budget to assist individuals and parallel teams to support their learning and development.

Once a year a teacher-only day is organised where new ideas are explored, and teachers collectively and individually reflect on and refine practice.
