Since 2014, the AISSA has supported national HALT certification in South Australia in conjunction with Catholic Education South Australia and the Department for Education under the South Australian Teacher Certification Committee (SATCC) – the certifying authority in South Australia. Certification provides a high quality, nationally consistent approach to identifying and certifying teachers in accordance with the advanced career stages of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST).

HALT certification:

  • recognises and promotes quality teaching
  • provides an opportunity for teachers to reflect on their practice
  • provides a reliable indication of quality teaching to support professional growth and recognises high performing teachers.

The AISSA facilitates the assessment process of all HALT applications in the Independent sector in South Australia using nationally trained assessors from AISSA schools. Leaders who are interested in becoming an assessor can contact Mary Pickett for more information.

To achieve certification as a HALT, applicants are required to:

  • have support and endorsement from their Principal
  • engage in professional learning that involves reflecting on their own practice and self and peer review
  • demonstrate an understanding of what quality teaching is, based on the advanced career stages of the APST and the Classroom Practice Continuum.
  • prepare an annotated collection of evidence of practice at the HALT career stage which demonstrates achievement of the Standards and the teacher’s impact on student outcomes and the practice of colleagues.

A series of three workshops is offered each semester to support applicants to understand the requirements of the process and how to collect, curate and annotate evidence of practice at the HALT career stage. Applicants are required to complete all three workshops in sequence within a 12-month timeframe.

Further information can be found on the AISSA and AITSL Certification webpages or contact Mary Pickett.
