Most education departments around the world require teachers to complete a certain number of professional development hours per year. Our courses are perfectly suited for this purpose and we are aware that teachers around the world are able to claim PD hours.
In New South Wales, Australia
If you are based in NSW, Australia, you might be aware that you are required as a teacher (Proficient Teacher level) to complete a minimum of 50 hours of NESA Registered Professional Development to maintain accreditation. Completing our trainings is the perfect way to do so.

What is the purpose of the Standards?
The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers are a public statement of what constitutes teacher quality. They define the work of teachers and make explicit the elements of high-quality, effective teaching in 21st-century schools that will improve educational outcomes for students. The Standards do this by providing a framework that makes clear the knowledge, practice and professional engagement required across teachers’ careers. They present a common understanding and language for discourse between teachers, teacher educators, teacher organisations, professional associations and the public.
