Staff professional learning at JMSS is targeted towards the continual development and capacity building of our teaching and support staff. Professional learning is aligned with the AITSL Professional Standards for Teaching and encompasses a wide variety of opportunities for staff to engage in that count towards the required hours as outlined by the Victorian Institute of Teachers.
The school timetable is designed to allow teaching staff to participate in hours of professional learning on a Wednesday afternoon each week. Staff participate in PD Share, teaching and learning workshops, whole staff meetings and individual faculty professional learning programs during this time.
Staff are also encouraged to participate in programs such as the beginning teachers program, emerging leaders program, DISC training and coaching workshops as well as being involved in the delivery and participation in many external Professional Development Days and Conferences.
