Supporting continual professional growth: AITSL teacher standards


Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and PETAA resources

Start your professional reading program with our PETAA books and publications. Your teaching expertise will deepen through your application of the teacher standards and illustrations of practice —broadening your connection to PETAA’s rich content.

‘The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers are a public statement of what constitutes teacher quality. They define the work of teachers and make explicit elements of high-quality, effective teaching in 21st century schools that will improve educational outcomes for students.’

Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership

We have mapped and linked our PETAA Papers collection and are progressively mapping our books by chapter to the seven AITSL Teacher Standards across the three teaching domains of Professional Knowledge, Professional Practice and Professional Engagement. As a PETAA Professional Member you now have direct access through this lens to a rich matrix — our resources, the standards themselves and authentic illustrations of practice, to support your performance and development processes as a teacher.

If you haven’t already done so, use the Teacher Self-Assessment Tool (Teacher SAT) at AITSL to assess yourself against a series of statements that reflect the practices of teachers across different career stages.

Curating PETAA content to Professional Standards for Teachers allows us to support teachers and schools in accreditation and planning, and in our own understanding of the evolving professional needs of our members.
