Workshop B: Professional Writing Requirements and Evidence of Impact 

  • Certification requires a deep reflection on your teaching practice and an evaluative mindset to explore the impact of your professional practice on colleagues and students and to collect relevant evidence and articulate its alignment to the APST.  
  • The professional writing requirements of the process are significant and require a targeted approach. Applicants will engage in writing annotations and aligning their evidence to the descriptors. 
  • This workshop will also explore the role and requirements of referees in the certification process.  


Target audience: Teachers who are working at or towards the Highly Accomplished or Lead Teacher (HALT) career stage of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) who have the support and approval of their Principal.  Collecting and collating the evidence of your impact for the Stage 1 application usually takes one to two years.

Delivery mode: Face to face

Presenters: Mary Pickett, AISSA
