Description

The G2P course is designed to meet the needs of Early Career teachers (ECT’s) as they work towards the Proficient career level of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.  We aim to develop the capacity of ECT’s through an in-depth exploration of the common issues and problems of practice for ECT’s.
 
Early career teacher resilience is promoted when the focus is on understanding the complex, intense and unpredictable nature of teachers' work rather than on individual deficits and victim blaming.  Early Career Teachers: Stories of Resilience 2012

The Early Career Teachers are supported throughout the course by Nicola Davidson and Sam Wynne – Leadership and Teaching Quality consultants and by AISWA Psychology services, Curriculum Consultants, invited school Principals and Leaders, accomplished classroom teachers from AISWA schools and prior attendees of the program.  This support alongside the school based mentor provides the ECT’s with a strong and knowledge network to guide, educate and mentor them during the first year/s of their graduate journey. 
Throughout the 5 days we cover: 
  • ECT resilience and wellbeing
  • Developing a growth mindset 
  • The First 6 weeks of school  - establishing a positive classroom culture
  • How to talk to parents 
  • Writing reports and conducting 3 way interviews
  • Building your professional identity and mindset
  • Behaviour management and classroom strategies 
  • What Principals, parents and students wish you knew
  • The power of our words - language in the classroom
  • Portfolio development Graduate to Proficient
  • Small group and individual coaching sessions
Each graduate will need a school based mentor.  Mentor training is available and mentor teachers are expected to attend the first half day with their ECT.  Mentors can register for Mentor training via the AISWA website.
 
Attendance at all sessions will be expected and participants will be asked to seek the support of their Principal or Head of School. It is anticipated that network groups will be formed to provide a forum for collegial support and collaborative learning.
 
Heads of School are asked to assist their graduate teachers to enrol in this course as soon as possible. It is a requirement of this course that all participants have Mentors who are required to attend Day 1 on Tuesday, 26 February and half a day on Wednesday, 27 February 2019.
