We have developed the The National Professional Standards for Highly Accomplished Teachers of Science as part of the leadership group of our federated body ASTA.
We believe professional standards
• directly reflect a vision of the kind of science teaching and learning that is valued and is effective;
• recognise the holism of and interaction between elements of teachers' work, describing highly accomplished teachers' discipline and craft knowledge, skills, attitudes and values;
• capture the essence of effective performance; and are demonstratable.
