Our Teachers say it best

I have been doing relief teaching for a few years. As a relief teacher i always feel so different an outsider.It is great to be doing these courses as it keeps us up to date with teaching as well as giving us such useful ideas and information. Relief teachers have never been given these opportunities before.

Thank you to the Relief Teacher Association for bringing together a range of experienced educators and professionals that provide practical advice and effective teaching strategies to expand our toolbox of ideas and solutions. By participating in professional development via the RTA, teachers learn new practices and have another context for sharing knowledge and experience outside of the workplace
