Senior Years consultation underway

Registrations for the 24 face-to-face consultation meetings on the Draft Writing Briefs for Senior Years English, Mathematics, Science and History are still being taken.

The consultation meetings are held from 4–6:00pm (tea and coffee from 3:30pm). They provide an opportunity to hear from the BOSTES Inspector for the learning area and discuss the options and proposals in the Draft Writing Briefs.

Participation at a consultation meeting contributes 2 hours of QTC Registered PD (addressing 6.2.2 and 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers) towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

Feedback can also be given via written submission or the online survey, which includes questions posed at consultation meetings and some additional questions. The survey enables you to submit your ideas at a time that suits you.

All feedback will be considered in the revision of the Draft Writing Briefs and collated to produce a consultation report.

Consultation ends on Sunday 29 November.
