Professional Learning Calendar in Education 2014

We are a leading provider of professional learning for the education community, delivering programs designed to support the development of professional knowledge and skills.

The calendar below lists our current plans for conferences, short courses and workshop days in 2014, with links to registration pages. In addition to advertised events, we can tailor courses to your needs and deliver them at your school. To discuss this further, please contact Nina Goodwin.

Supervising teachers who mentor preservice teacher-education students from the Faculty of Education and Social Work may elect to redirect their professional experience mentoring payment towards the cost of these programs. Please contact the Office of Professional Learning for details of this option. If you are interested in mentoring a Sydney University student teacher, contact Director of Professional Experiences Dr Tony Loughland on 9351 6287.
