National Professional Standards for Teachers
Background
The National Professional Standards for Teachers is a public
statement of what constitutes teacher quality.
The Standards define the work of teachers and make explicit the
elements of high-quality, effective teaching in 21st-century schools,
which result in improved educational outcomes for students.
Dual purpose:
• improvement
• accountability
Career progression:
• Graduate
• Proficient
• Highly Accomplished
• Lead
Graduate career stages of the NPST are
the foundation for accreditation of Initial
Teacher Education programs
National approach endorsed by
MCEEDYA in April 2011
AITSL works with relevant stakeholder to
develop materials and processes to
support he transition which commenced in
2012.
Proficient career stages of the NPST
provide the foundation for the approach
to the registration and renewal of
registration of teachers
National approach endorsed by
MCEEDYA in October 2011
AITSL is working with key stakeholders
to develop a governance framework for
implementation to enable
commencement of the approach from
2012
The lead and highly
accomplished career stages of
the NPST form the foundation
for the voluntary process of
certification
Approach was endorsed by
SCSEEC in April 2012

stakeholders to confirm
transition and deeming
arrangements, develop materials
to support implementation in

and student outcomes through the development of a
culture in schools focused on continuous teacher
performance appraisal, growth and improvement

for the Professional Learning of
Teachers and School Leaders
