To date we have two Department of Education Schools as registered members in our pilot scheme, presenting courses to their staff, designed by the school, presented in their school. As the program grows and develops all PTC NSW member associations will be invited to provide quality presentations accessing their depth of subject specific knowledge and valued professional presenters to create contemporary professional learning experiences to be delivered within schools.
Based on our initial evaluations, PL presentations via PTCplus have been very positively received. PTCplus is providing quality professional teacher created, teacher presented professional events, tailor made for schools by school staff. A professional team of consultants are also available to support non-curriculum areas of interest for both staff and students. Courses that are attracting much interest include Wellness; Values; Mentoring; Positive Psychology and Resilience.
Non-curriculum staff and student events are also available from PTCplus. To find out more about this exciting new venture PTC NSW will be hosting an information evening early in Term 1. Information will be sent to all member associations shortly.
