A draft “Professional Development Framework” has been developed by the Quality Teaching Committee of the Teacher Registration Board Northern Territory. This Framework outlines a vision for professional development of all teachers in the Northern Territory. The Framework has been developed in accordance with the amendments to the Teacher Registration Board (Northern Territory) Act 2004 which is due to commence 1 January 2020. The amended Act enhances the existing scheme of teacher registration by changing the registration renewal requirements pertaining to professional development. This will ensure that teachers are constantly reflecting on and improving their practice and that children and young people in the Northern Territory are receiving a quality education.
Consultation is now open to all relevant stakeholders on the draft Professional Development Framework. The consultation period will be open until Sunday 22 September 2019 via the consultation survey that has been developed for feedback on the Framework. The link for this feedback survey is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7WTJPVD.
