Professional Learning

Continuing professional learning is an integral part of teacher development. Teachers, like other professionals, make a career-long commitment to learn new skills, explore new ideas and build knowledge, all for the benefit of their students.

All ACT teachers must complete a minimum of 20 hours professional learning each year to maintain their registration. The ACT requirement mirrors provisions for maintaining teacher registration across Australia, with direct links to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers external link or Standard for Principals external link.
