According to SACE, if teachers plan their participation in the three types of professional development activities carefully and wisely.
Teachers will have to earn their Professional Development (PD) points from three types of professional development activities:
Teacher initiated activities
EDUVATION MAKES FREE RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO TEACHERS WHO TRAIN WITH US!
School initiated activities
Externally initiated activities
(SACE endorsed activities)
EDUVATION ONLINE AND BLENDED LEARNING COURSES
Type 1 and 2 Activities are not submitted to SACE for endorsement. Teachers are responsible to participate in them and report on them in their Professional Development Portfolios.
Type 3 Activities, on the other hand, go through a quality assurance process with SACE in order to protect teaches against dishonest service providers and poor quality activities.
Teachers are urged to try to strike a balance by earning points from all three types of PD activities over the three year cycle. Points earned are recorded on-line via the Points Schedule / Tables provided by SACE.
A wide range of options are available in all three categories.
