Curriculum Team
      Professional Learning Rationale
      Catholic Education Western Australia’s (CEWA) Vision for Learning states that
      the vocation of teaching demands careful preparation and continuing readiness
      to renew and adapt to the challenges of the 21st Century and beyond. Each
      professional learning event facilitated by the Curriculum Team strives to deliver
      contextual and exceptional learning experiences for all CEWA staff.
      Professional learning must be differentiated; what is needed for one school or
      team may not be needed by another. Each person’s role, strategic priorities and
      context play a large part in determining what type of professional support and
      experience is required. All professional learning provides the opportunity to build
      teacher capacity in order to promote student learning.
      High-quality professional development provides access to new technologies for
      teaching and learning. We actively engage teachers in meaningful and relevant
      activities for their individual contexts and promote peer collaboration and
      community building. The Curriculum Team strives to build capacity in CEWA
      schools and support a common vision for student learning.
      The Curriculum Team is guided by the AITSL Teacher Standards, the Western
      Australian Curriculum and CECWA Strategic Directions 2019-2021. Our vision is to
      work alongside educators to develop capacity in teaching and learning, enabling
      children to flourish in our Christ-centered, child-focused schools.

      Please note: Enrolments will be checked one week prior to the professional learning
      event. If there are fewer than 10 participants registered, the event will be referred to
      the Curriculum Team leader to determine viability.
