Will learning be recognised?

Where relevant, each course aligns to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and can be used to accumulate the 100 hours of Professional Learning required for full teacher registration. Certain courses allow learners to earn a verifiable digital badge, to recognise the knowledge and skills learned and demonstrated.
