Assessment of pre-service teachers is consistent and rigorous, to ensure the classroom readiness of Australian teachers
TPAs are endorsed by the AITSL TPA expert advisory group as meeting Program Standard 1.2
AITSL established an expert advisory group to provide advice on the development, implementation, and monitoring of a TPA to help ensure it meets the requirements of Program Standard 1.2.
To date, the expert advisory group has endorsed two TPAs.
When will we know more?
At the 22 June 2018 Education Council meeting, education ministers agreed to AITSL revising the 2015 Standards and Procedures to require the expert advisory group to provide advice on all TPAs.
As of December 2019, the expert advisory group will provide advice on all TPAs as part of accreditation decisions made by teacher regulatory authorities. In time, this will provide a national overview of TPAs and ensure comparability in the ways in which TPAs meet Program Standard 1.2.
