    2022/2023 Cognitive Coaching Facilitated by: Gavin Grift

    Please note that this registration is for the 2022 Cohort, the 2021 Cognitive Coaching Cohort will complete the final six days of the program in the first half of 2022 having engaged in Day 1 and 2 in 2021.  

    In this eight day course leaders of learning will practice and internalise effective strategies to develop skills to support, coach and mentor others in their schools, to support the ongoing improvement and evaluation of professional practice.

    Cognitive Coaching is a research-based model that will capitalise upon and enhances cognitive processes. The course is highly recommended for all schools who seek to build leadership density and leverage change through critical dialogue. This course aims to build capacity by:

    • Assisting improvement and evaluation of pedagogy in your school context
    • Providing you and your team with strategies and ways of thinking and working, with potential to improve learning outcomes for all.

    Testimonials from leaders who have participated in this course affirm and highly recommend it.

    The Cognitive Coaching course was without doubt one of the best professional learning opportunities of my career.  I would encourage leaders in our schools to consider this as an essential course for their professional development. The course was well structured with helpful strategies and real applications that could be put into practice.  It developed a mindset of coaching which sits in a companion model, that is sitting alongside and supporting others in their formation and daily work, rather than just performance management. The eight-day course was packed with practical and interactive activities, superbly led by our facilitator.”   (Philip Donato, Head of Senior School, Saint Ignatius College)

    Up to 40 places are available to school leaders for this unique learning opportunity.

      Highly Accomplished & Lead Teachers (HALT)

      More than 100 CESA teachers are currently engaged in the certification process.  Teachers who consider they meet the criteria to be either a Highly Accomplished or Lead Teacher, are invited to participate in the certification process after attending an initial HALT Certification information workshop.

      Professional learning support will be provided via two further compulsory workshops:

      • ·             Annotating Evidence
      • ·             Classroom Observation

      Across the three sessions, teachers will:

      ·             Explore all requirements for applying for certification as Highly Accomplished or                         Lead Teacher

      ·             Explore the importance of writing clear, precise annotations that align evidence to                     each of the Teacher Professional Standards

      ·             Be provided opportunities to discuss the types of ongoing evidence that may be                             collected to evidence their application

      ·             Have access to a supportive network to assist with the application process for                                 certification

      ·             Be able to structure applications, write annotations and analyse evidence sets with                         others to evaluate suitability

      Schools or regions with more than ten interested teachers may negotiate with Adrian Dilger for these workshops to be held onsite (or hosted by a school in the region). Adrian Dilger and Belinda Radcliffe are also committed to supporting regional and rural schools and regions by negotiation.

      HALT Certification: Information, Annotation and Classroom Observations Workshops

      All three workshops listed above can be covered by attending a full one-day workshop encompassing all three components.

      Teacher Certification: Assessor Training 

      Registration of Interest

      Highly Accomplished or Lead certified teachers, Principals, Deputy Principals, other school leaders, system coaches and system leaders are encouraged to undertake the AITSL Certification Assessor Training Program. Whilst the course is primarily to train assessors to meet the anticipated demand of teachers seeking certification, it will also inform participants about the process and requirements for certification. On that basis, it is excellent professional learning for teachers and leaders of learning at all levels.

      As an assessor, individuals will gain a much richer insight into the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and how these can be used to:

      ·            Utilise and embed reflective practice
      ·             Improve the use of effective classroom observation and feedback

      ·             Evidence teacher impact on students, learning outcomes and teacher colleagues.

      The program requires the successful completion of online modules combined with three days of face to face workshops (attendance at all three face to face workshops is a requirement).

Educators will use and test digital templates to construct microcredentials that are high quality and consistent with the National Microcredential Framework. Input and feedback from educators will be gathered to refine the microcredential templates.

      This workshop will take place over 2 days and participation at BOTH days is required.

        Intended Audience
        Teachers of EALD learners in Years 2 to 12
        (The focus will be on written language from all curriculum areas)

        Context
        The Learning English: Achievement and Proficiency (LEAP) Levels is the tool used by teachers to formatively assess the Standard Australian English (SAE) proficiency of EALD students using written (and oral) language evidence from all curriculum areas. It is aligned with the Australian Curriculum Literacy progressions and allows teachers to identify what the learners know and what they need to learn next, and to track progression. 

        Also, all schools that intend submitting EALD data for CESA funding allocations need to ensure that teachers who conduct EALD assessments have participated in relevant professional learning about how to use the LEAP Levels.

        2 Day Workshop Focus on Written Language:

        • Preparatory work for the first session will be communicated to participants prior to Day 1
        • Build knowledge about the language/grammar of the LEAP Levels 6-12
        • Apply this knowledge through guided, collaborative and independent use of the LEAP Levels to assess writing samples and identify learning goals

        This workshop will take place over 2 days and participation at both days is required.

        This workshop will be repeated in Term 2 and is available for registration separately - please Register Here for the sessions.

        Note: If you need to learn about assessing oral language of students in Reception and Year 1, please Register Here for the R-1 session on Friday 24 March.

        If you wish to engage with the FYOSLA Year 2 LEAP Levels workshop (1 day) please Register Here for the session on Wednesday 12 April.
