Beginning Teacher Conferences

Sign Up For Course


These conferences are aimed at members who are in their first few years of teaching. Content covered includes:

  • processes for achieving accreditation as a Proficient teacher with NESA, including the gathering of appropriate evidence and using lesson observations through the first years of teaching
  • advice for teachers already maintaining their accreditation at Proficient.
  • planning and programming
  • classroom management
  • Aboriginal education.

Beginning Teachers Conferences are an excellent way for teachers to build professional networks to support them throughout their careers.
