Teacher accrediation is a HUGE job with big risks involved
The teacher accreditation process in Australia involves four career stages. Only two of them (That’s Graduate and Proficient) are mandated. The other two, (Highly Accomplished and Lead Teacher) are a choice for us.
With all the school lockdowns happening across Australia, we’ve been under extra pressure this year too. Right?
Whilst you stare at the rising amount of work before you, the idea of adding to that workload with an extra portfolio task seems so daunting.
You’ve been to the training session on Highly Accomplished and it feels like something you could do.. then the feeling of overwhelm sets in… It’s right there in the pit of your stomach. It’s such a huge job and there are no guarantees that your efforts will be met with success.
Can you relate to thoughts like:
- “I’m not organised“
- “I don’t have time or can’t manage my time well”
- “I haven’t been teaching long enough anyway”
Have you considered that these are beliefs (NOT FACTS)...and you're in charge of them?
I totally understand where all of these thoughts are coming from. As an accreditation coach, I hear them all the time.
The thing is…. they aren’t REALLY the reason you’re NOT working towards your next career goal.
Tune into this week’s episode of the Reflective Teacher Podcast with Selena Woodward, to take a moment to explore what some of these beliefs might be trying to ACTUALLY tell you.
Let’s bust these beliefs wide open and see if we can’t get you moving forward.
