Health and Safety Representative - The most recent Policy and Compliance Newsletter asked for expressions of interest in attending a 5 day Health and Safety Representative Course. The survey link is still open, and schools are encouraged to complete the survey as soon as possible so that I can complete plans for delivery of the course.
Notes: WorkSafe recommend all HSRs receive training within 12 months of being elected. Some HSR functions can only be performed by trained reps. Under the transition rules current elected OSH rep’s terms will expire in 12 months, or sooner if there existing term expires.

AITSL Optimisation Project

AITSL has recently undertaken an optimisation project to provide a more complete experience for those who visit this page.

What’s been improved
The design and features of the new Teacher Standards pages have been guided by feedback we received from hundreds of pre-service teachers, teachers at all career stages and leaders. Some of the new features are listed below.

Launch of Holocaust Memorial Week 2022 and resources

Holocaust Memorial Week is part of Australia’s commitment to the IHRA, and to the enduring importance of Holocaust education, remembrance, and research. The theme for 2022 is 'The Power of Place' and includes resources and lesson plans to support teachers and students engage with the connections between the Holocaust and Australia.
