On behalf of member professional teachers’ associations (PTAs) the Professional Teachers’ Council NSW provides a corporate and strong voice on educational issues through submissions to and lobbying of Governments, Government Departments and other authorities on agreed educational issues and concerns. Below are some of Professional Teachers’ Council’s NSW recent submissions.
A Charter for the Teaching Profession
As a national professional body for teachers and school leaders, Teaching Australia is proposing that the teaching profession develop a national charter. A charter would be a high level statement of what teachers collectively believe, value, know and do, and would affirm the principles that underpin the practice of teaching. It would stand over time and apply to teaching in all contexts.
