MTA is provided free for use and relies upon the voluntary commitment of experienced teachers like you, many of whom are Highly Accomplished and Lead Teachers, Assistant Principals, Principals and leaders in their teaching areas. 

This contribution is not designed to add to your workload, and you are free to give your time to advice as you are able. You are able to go ‘on breaks’ so you do not receive requests at any time.

My Teaching Advice:

  • invites you to respond to questions – about knowledge, personal and interpersonal, practice and pedagogy and process – from beginning teachers, with your geographic context, school/setting and phase of schooling in mind
  • provides anonymous contact between you and beginning teacher to arrange for a chat in real time
  • provides the real time chat interface for your discussion
  • gives you feedback regarding the advice you have provided

MTA is designed for point-of-need assistance and advice. It does not replace ongoing mentoring, or support. MTA is not intended to replace the formal and informal supports provided to beginning teachers through their schools, systems, and colleagues. MTA offers support to beginning teachers in situations where access to supports may be limited. For example:

  • casual relief/replacement teachers
  • teachers in rural and remote areas
  • early childhood teachers.

MTA maintains privacy and confidentiality, and advice provided is without obligation, consistent with a code of ethics, stated policies and procedures, and specific terms of service.
