Alignment with AITSL Standards

MTP’s standards for principals and teachers are in full alignment with AITSL’s Australian Professional Standard for Principals and Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. This ensures that our training reflects the latest and most effective educational practices.

Continuing Professional Development for Teachers

In line with the requirements set by each Australian state and territory, we help educators fulfil their annual 20-hour professional development requirement for teacher accreditation. Completing just eight modules in any pathway will not only meet these requirements but also provide a certificate of completion detailing the learning outcomes.

“I like the fact that when I was doing the professional learning, it questioned my knowledge and my understanding, but I didn’t feel threatened by it. It gave me information about what I do and validated what I believe.”
