Certification of Highly Accomplished and Lead Teachers is a nationally endorsed process operating across Australia through the leadership of the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership.
The Certification process is designed to support career progression of teachers in a way that allows them to excel in the classroom and continue to positively influence student learning outcomes.
Certification uses the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers as the basis for making rigorous and consistent judgements regarding a teacher's practice at the higher career stages regardless of jurisdiction or sector.
The purpose of Certification is to:
» recognise and promote quality teaching
» provide an opportunity for teachers to reflect on their practice
» provide a reliable indication of quality teaching
