Improve with the Teacher Standards

When starting out as a teacher, you need to understand the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. The Teacher Standards define the elements necessary to deliver high-quality, effective teaching that improve educational outcomes for students. They'll also help you transition from the Graduate to Proficient career stages in order to become a fully registered teacher.
