Professionalism in the ACT – have your say

The Teacher Quality Institute (TQI) Teacher Registration Committee is considering extending the teacher registration model to accept all qualified early childhood teachers (ECTs) in the ACT. In NSW all early childhood teachers are accredited with NESA.

The move would show the ACT Government values the important role of early childhood teachers, as professionals and significant influencers on the learning and development outcomes of children.

Professional registration will build on the professionalism of this sector, will raise the profile of ECTs providing recognition they are a valued and qualified workforce that underpins quality early childhood education.

TQI is using a series of virtual consultation sessions to gather views on how ECT registration may work in practice and is seeking input from anyone in the ACT interested in ECT registration.

The union’s position has always been that Teachers are Teachers and ECTs should be accredited in the same way as their peers in schools. They are university trained and dedicated to the educational development of young children.

The TQI Teacher Registration Board invites ECTs living or working in the ACT to one their 90-minute virtual consultation sessions to share your views on how ECT Registration may work in practice.

 

You do not need to be an expert on teacher registration, it is your experience with early childhood education and care that counts.
