Uni Newcastle expands support for teachers

The university has funding to foster a PD resource in schools

Uni Newcastle announces its Quality Teaching Academy, to provide teachers, “support services, resources and networks to implement and evaluate professional development in their schools.” It joins the quality teaching rounds and assessments Uni Newcastle already offers with funding from the Paul Ramsay Foundation, (yes that Paul Ramsay, but nothing to do with the western civilisation study programme).

The Foundation stumped up $16.4m for Uni Newcastle to develop PD for school teachers in 2018 CMM July 27 2018). The new programme is developed by Laureate Professor Jenny Gore, with Un Newcastle colleagues Jess Harris and Drew Miller.
