AITSL eNews for educators 

Dear colleague,

We know some of you are, or soon will be, on a well-earned first-term break. This edition of e-news focuses on the National Review of Teacher Registration as we call for written submissions. It's really important that we hear the voice of teachers and principals in the Review process. So as well as written submissions, we will soon have available a short survey for busy principals and teachers to complete.

You can also learn about school leadership and read the new Australian guidelines for leadership development called 'Leading for Impact'.

We hope you enjoy the read.

WANTED - Your bright ideas for the National Review of Teacher Registration

The National Review of Teacher Registration, Expert Panel is now inviting written submissions in response to the National Review of Teacher Registration Consultation Paper.

The Consultation Paper is one part of a broader discussion with education stakeholders on how aspects of the national framework for teacher registration are currently working, and potential areas for improvement.

Submissions will be accepted until midnight, Sunday 29 April 2018.
