The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers are a public statement of what constitutes teacher quality. They define the work of teachers and make explicit elements of high-quality, effective teaching in 21st century schools that will improve educational outcomes for students.
The Standards describe what is expected of teachers across three domains: Professional Knowledge, Professional Practice and Professional Engagement; and across four career stages: Graduate, Proficient, Highly Accomplished and Lead.
The Standards present a common understanding and language for professional discussions and reflections on teacher preparation, practice and improvement. The Standards are a useful framework for a broad range of education stakeholders including teachers, school leaders, teacher educators, teacher organisations, professional associations and the public. For more information on the Standards please visit the AITSL website.
