Implementing a performance and development framework

Jensen, B; Reichl, J - Grattan Institute

Document type:

In 2011 the Commonwealth Government announced plans for a nationally consistent teacher performance and development framework. The Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) has been tasked with developing this framework, due for delivery in 2013.

This paper is intended to inform the development of the teacher performance and development framework. It draws heavily on information gathered for two previous Grattan Institute reports: Better teacher appraisal and feedback: Improving performance, and Catching up: Learning from the best school systems in East Asia. [Report]

This research informed the development of resources in AITSL’s Teacher Toolkit.
