Federation members are encouraged to respond to the draft standards published by the Interim Committee of the NSW Institute of Teachers.
In June 2002, the Minister for Education and Training, John Watkins, established an Interim Committee to advise on the development of an Institute of Teachers.
The interim committee of the NSW Institute of Teachers has commenced a period of consultation with the profession around the ongoing establishment of an Institute. This will include consultation on the functions of the institute as well as the composition and method of selection of the governing body.
Federation members are encouraged to respond to the draft standards in time for the responses to be included in submissions to the Interim Committee, prior to its report to the Government at the end of June.
