Thank you to everyone that completed our biannual survey, we were very grateful for the outstanding response rates. With over 1400 educators and 265 schools replying, this provides us with invaluable information that we will use to ensure we are continually improving our service to each of you and the schools we support.

A key area you identified for improvement, was providing greater support to enhance your teaching practice. We have already taken key steps in this area, including diversifying where professional development opportunities are held and increasing the length of our Graduate Teachers Conference to a full day.

Also on the professional development front, we currently have workshops in the pipeline that we will make available across the year to benefit educators, they will be focusing on the key areas that you have identified. These workshops, commencing soon, will complement our other professional development sessions, which begin the first week of March. Check out our events page to stay informed.

I mentioned in our last biannual survey report that we were in the process of creating a development framework plan to assist us in providing you with feedback. For increased effectiveness, this is designed to link in with our professional development workshops across the year.

It’s great to see that 92% of you agree or strongly agree that you feel motivated to go above and beyond at work. As a result, we are sure that the impact on students and learning communities will continue to be great!
