Online and in-school programs

We now offer teachers professional development courses in the evenings off-campus and online. These courses are endorsed by the Board of Studies, Teaching & Educational Standards (BOSTES) as continuing professional development. Three courses are available and more are being developed:

The modules within each course are offered in blended mode – face-to-face classes at hub schools plus reading/online participation – and each is equivalent to half of a postgraduate unit of study.

Completion of Module 1 of any program is a prerequisite for enrolment in its corresponding Module 2.

Teachers who successfully complete both modules of a program may choose to have their work assessed for accreditation towards a higher postgraduate degree.

Cost and mentoring payment transfer

The usual cost of each module is $770 per person, including GST. Teachers who provide mentoring to students from the school who are undertaking professional experience as part of their undergraduate teacher-training degree can redirect their mentoring payment from the school towards the cost. An additional fee is charged when participants wish to take up this option of postgraduate credit transfer, to ensure price parity with school postgraduate coursework fees.

Individual schools – or communities of schools in the Sydney metropolitan region – that can guarantee a minimum of 20 participants in a blended-learning module qualify for a reduced rate of $385 per person. Further discounts may apply to schools offering to act as host schools.

Tailored in-school courses developed on request

The Office of Professional Learning can also deliver programs and courses specifically tailored to your school's needs and delivered to your staff at your workplace.

Modules can be adapted to be delivered at staff-development days and in other customised modes, and may qualify for BOSTES professional-development endorsement.
