Consultation on Senior Years English, Mathematics, Science and History continues

323 people attended after school consultation meetings last week at venues across NSW. To secure your spot at one of the remaining meetings, please register by 8:00 am the day the before.

Participation at a consultation meeting will contribute 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.

Consultation meetings are held from 4:00 – 6:00pm. They provide an opportunity to hear from the BOSTES subject inspector and discuss the Draft Writing Briefs with teachers from other schools.

Feedback can also be given via:

  • the online survey, which includes the questions posed at consultation meetings and some additional questions, or
  • written submission to Vicki Kimber, Senior Project Officer, BOSTES, GPO Box 5300, Sydney 2001 or

All feedback will be used to revise the final Writing Brief, which will, in turn, be used to develop the draft syllabus. Consultation continues until Sunday 29 November.
