How can I use the Professional Development report to support my school self-assessment?

  • The Teaching domain of the School Excellence Framework (SEF) notes that professional learning that aligns with the school plan will improve the quality of teaching and student learning outcomes.
  • This report allows schools to view the amount and type of professional learning undertaken by teachers. This will support schools to self-assess practice in the learning and development element of the SEF.

What should I look for?

Refer to the visualisations to answer questions around staff professional development, courses and hours completed. This will assist in school planning, accreditation and staff professional development.
