National Standards for Teachers

Domains of Teaching
Teachers demonstrate standards across three domains that are interconnected, interdependent and
overlapping. In practice, teaching activity draws on aspects of all three domains.

Professional Knowledge
Teachers draw on a body of professional knowledge to respond to changing educational contexts and individual needs of students. Teachers know their students well, including the diverse social, cultural, ethnic, religious and special learning needs that influence teaching and learning. They know and value the importance of establishing close links between the school, home and community. Teachers knowthe characteristics of the physical, intellectual and emotional stages of development of students.Teachers have knowledge and understanding of the fundamental ideas, principles, and structure of their subject/discipline and make links to other content areas.
They know effective pedagogies for teaching that content and understand how ICT can support and enhance student learning.
Professional Practice
Teachers create a climate where learning is valued. They maintain safe, engaging and challenging environments for students. They operate effectively at all stages of the teaching and learning cycle,including: planning for learning and assessment, developing learning programs, teaching, assessing,providing feedback on student learning and reporting to parents/caregivers. They use a range of teaching strategies and resources to maximise learning outcomes for their students.Teachers analyse student performance and use it to evaluate and improve their practice.Teachers are effective communicators with a repertoire of techniques to engage students, colleagues
and parents.

Professional Engagement
Teachers continuously reflect on, evaluate and improve their professional knowledge and practice.They engage in professional learning both individually and collegially to support and enhance their knowledge and practice.They support the learning and
wellbeing of students and colleagues by contributing to the school, wider school community and the profession.
