Centre for Professional Learning & Trade Union Training

The NSW Teachers Federation, is both an industrial and professional organisation and provides specific development and training opportunities for its members.  These training and development opportunities are conducted by both our Trade Union Training unit (TUT) and the Centre for Professional Learning (CPL).

Trade Union Training

While a strong focus of the Trade Union Training unit deals with industrial issues and working conditions it offers a considerable number of conferences and seminars that are aimed at ‘early career teachers’ including Beginning Teacher Conferences, New Teacher Seminars and Casual /Temporary Teacher seminars.

Most of the Federation’s TUT courses and seminars are accredited with the Board of Studies, Teaching & Educational Standards (BoSTES) and addresses Australian Professional Teaching Standards

All financial members of the NSW Teachers Federation are eligible to apply to attend Federation TUT courses. More info [http://www.nswtf.org.au/services/training.html ]

Centre for Professional Learning

The NSW Teachers Federation has now established the Centre for Professional Learning (CPL) to provide high quality training and support for Federation members in a range of educational areas. The courses aim to provide practical, tested and well researched approaches to issues that face teachers every day at the school level.

The CPL will also aim to offer programs that are useful across the spectrum of a teacher’s career from the early years of teaching to the experienced and leadership levels.

All courses have been accredited by the BoSTES and addresses Australian Professional Teaching Standards  and  CPL courses will count f for accreditation and maintenance purposes.

The courses are also being conducted with the support of the Department of Education and Communities and the NSW Board of Studies.

An introductory course fee will apply to all courses except those dedicated to early career teachers who will have the fee waived. In the usual fashion, schools will be asked to meet the relief costs incurred by teachers attending their professional learning courses.

All financial members of the NSW Teachers Federation are eligible to apply to attend CPL courses.
