The AISSA provides information and support for teachers in Independent Schools in SA who are seeking to become certified as a Highly Accomplished or Lead teacher (HALT). A series of three ½ day workshops will be offered from 2019. It is intended that applicants attend these workshops in sequence usually over a 1 to 2-year period whilst preparing their Stage 1 evidence collection. The workshops provide support and advice as well as an opportunity to meet with other aspiring applicants as well as some successful HALTs.

Completion of all three is now a pre-requisite for application.

Workshop 1:       Introduction to applying for Certification as a Highly Accomplished or Lead Teacher: requirements, suitability, the process and collecting evidence of impact (colleagues and/or students) against the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers

Workshop 2:       Meeting the Professional Writing Requirements: annotations and written statements

Workshop 3:       Collating your Evidence, Classroom Observations and Referees

For more information on certification please refer to the AISSA Teacher Certification or AITSL websites and The Guide to Teacher Certification in SA.
