Maintaining professional competence through currency of practice and professional learning

Currency is defined as a minimum of 180 days of teaching practice (or one full year of teaching) in the previous five years and is inclusive of all tasks teachers would undertake in the normal course of their employment as a teacher, including educational leadership and equivalent practice.

The mandatory 100 hours minimum of professional learning is a requirement to demonstrate ongoing learning that renews, enhances, develops or changes professional practice and links to the Standards. 

The Board acknowledges that teachers will have many more hours than the minimum of 100 hours so when selecting professional learning events to report to a minimum of 100 hours teachers should consider which activities:

  • Had the most impact in building my capacity and that of others?
  • Assisted me to consciously improve my practice?
  • Had the most impact on student outcomes?
