Great Teaching, Inspired Learning

Blueprint for Action

Launched in 2013, the NSW Government’s Great Teaching, Inspired Learning – A Blueprint for Action includes 47 actions for improving teacher quality and student learning outcomes in NSW schools.

Responding to research and feedback from extensive consultation with the community about teacher quality, the plan includes actions to:

  • make the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers central to delivering fair and accountable performance and accreditation processes and high quality professional development for all teachers
  • ensure career pathways and improved support for school leaders.
