Description and enrolment

Exemplary teachers constantly use data and other evidence to evaluate how well their students are progressing in response to their lessons. They also know that scaling up this expertise beyond the boundaries of their own classroom is no mean feat. It takes pedagogical know-how and change management skills. If you aspire to lead and support your school to flourish and grow through evaluative practice, this is the course to help you.

Once you have completed the course, your NESA Registered Professional Development hours will be automatically transferred to your NESA record.
