    PTCplus -
    Building capacity through professional learning

    The Professional Teachers’ Council NSW is delighted to introduce a professional learning platform utilising the professional capacity of Teacher Associations called PTCplus . Professional Learning events produced by PTCplus across a wide range of curriculum areas, with BOSTES accreditation are quality events created by teachers and presented by teachers.

    Teacher Associations will be invited to provide quality presentations accessing their depth of subject specific knowledge to create contemporary professional learning experiences within schools. PTCplus will work with PTCplus registered schools to create a professional learning centre and community within individual schools. Professional learning events will be created to support individual school plans and staff identified areas of professional learning.

    Non-curriculum events will also be available from PTCplus via a suite of areas presented by leading consultants. To find out more about this exciting new venture for PTC NSW please contact the PTC NSW office to arrange a consultation in your school.

    PTCplus will:

    • Establish a professional learning centre within YOUR school
    • YOU decide on the professional learning needs of your staff/students/parents
    • PTCplus creates a PL event calendar with YOU
    • PL events are created by teachers – presented by teachers to YOUR needs
    • Compliant PL events are BOSTES accredited

    PTCplus is:

    • your professional learning partner
    • creating your learning community
    • your sustainable professional learning model
