Casual relief or emergency teachers (CRTs) undertake approximately 10-15% of a learner’s education. Many of Victoria’s beginning teachers are working as CRTs; this can limit their opportunities to undertake an inquiry into their practice in order to move to (full) registration.
Congratulations to our teachers who were awarded with Australia Day Honours. You are an inspiration for your leaders.
It is wonderful to see registered teachers being recognised by one of Australia’s most prestigious awards, and it shows how much the community recognises the importance of and respects those working in the education sector.
We look forward to having all graduate teachers registered for the start of the school year. We are currently processing all the information supplied by education providers including the new Literacy and Numeracy Test results.
Australia’s largest education focused event – the National FutureSchools Expo - is coming to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre over 23 – 24 March 2017.
