Nazareth staff members engage in a wide variety of professional learning to guide their work and to ensure their ongoing knowledge and skill development.
Currently, staff members are engaged in school-based learning programs, programs offered through outside providers and postgraduate degrees in educational leadership.
Teacher professional learning is highly valued, as such, there are many ways in which the College plans opportunities for teacher professional development, both on- and off-campus, utilising both internal and external expertise.
Whole Staff Professional Learning Days
Each year, the College allocates a specific day in Terms 1, 2 and 3 for whole staff professional learning. Usually, each of the three days is focussed primarily on one of the different aspects of teaching: Teaching & Learning, Student Welfare, and Staff Formation.
- Learning Teams
Learning Area Leaders are members of one of three teams, the Student Growth Team, the Curriculum Differentiation Team and the Student Engagement Team. These teams undertake professional learning and then present their learnings to the rest of the teaching staff.
