I have recently joined the Relief Teacher Association and have already completed 6 hours of PD. The courses are fantastic and I love that I can share ideas and get feedback from other teachers at the same time. Getting all my PD plus the other benefits for under $100 is such great value. Thanks again!

I have been doing relief teaching for a few years. As a relief teacher i always feel so different ....like 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.

I am just thrilled to find this site. I did not know there was a support association for relief teachers. I relieve as Teacher/SSO/ECW - anything that comes up! Been on my own too long!

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.

This course has given me the confidence to go out into the classroom and want to use the IWB, not only has this course provided me with knowledge but has also built a network with other teachers. The resources have been great. Thank you for the support and congratulations for putting together such an effective course.

I have sincerely enjoyed this course and cannot wait to try out the many things i have learnt today. I will no longer be nervous about what to do if i don’t have enough time to prepare for a class on the previous day.

Thank you for all the Professional Learning you are organising - much appreciated when we are not always associated with the one school! I feel now that I can develop professionally as a casual teacher while I learn on the job.

Joining the RTA was one of the best decisions I have made. Especially post course, I feel a lot more confident that I can make use of the time I have off, and it is helping my career in a positive way. Thank you!
