TLN provides professional development to meet the specific needs of graduate teachers. These courses help teachers to master the basics of the craft of teaching and to help get priorities sorted, when the workload seems overwhelming.
The PD courses support teachers in the first year of teaching through to the fourth of fifth year; which is when most teachers typically find their feet and begin to enrich their practice with a broader range of teaching practices, curriculum knowledge and detailed insights into meeting individual learning needs.
TLN recommends that all graduate teachers join the relevant union, the IEU for teachers in Catholic and Independent schools and the AEU for teachers in DET schools. Joining the union will maximise the professional development opportunities that are available to you. The AEU and IEU in partnership with TLN are offering the Top 100 Graduate Teacher Program.
