ACT Public Schools ensure students are at the centre of our work. Our schools are vibrant learning environments for both students and teachers. Professional Learning Communities in our schools drive the culture for teachers to work and learn collaboratively to improve all students’ achievement.
Principles of Professional Learning Communities (adapted from Timperley 2018)
Are strongly led, planned and supported
Are linked and coherent, taking place over time
Are focused on empowering educators to address needs related to their learners
A pedagogical framework outlines the expectations for teaching and learning within a school. It promotes consistency of practice and supports teachers to know what the teaching and learning looks like within a school. Each ACT public school will develop and implement a pedagogical framework, to ensure high quality, evidence-based teaching practices focused on success for every student.
