Supervising teachers have the skills and knowledge to assess and provide feedback to pre-service teachers against the Graduate Teacher Standards
Stakeholder satisfaction about the quality and clarity of tools and guidance material for supervising teachers
AITSL's recently commissioned qualitative report, TEMAG evaluation: school-university partnerships (PTR Consulting Pty Ltd, 2018) highlights that stakeholders believe that, collectively, there has been some progress in identifying and supporting supervising teachers of ITE students, and that support materials and professional learning opportunities have supported schools in progressing development of the mentor role and supervising teachers’ capability.
AITSL has developed a range of professional experience resources aimed at developing the capacity of supervising teachers. These resources include case study videos, a research paper about the key components in professional experience, a guide to understanding the roles and responsibilities in professional experience, and guidelines and a template for developing formal professional partnership agreements and a professional partnership agreement template and related guidance. AITSL's online learning program Supervising Preservice Teachers (SPT) was developed in 2012 in partnership with the NSW Education Standards Authority (then the NSW Institute of Teaching) and the Queensland College of Teachers to support supervising teachers.
