As part of Sydney Catholic Schools, we employ highly qualified and competent teachers who are accredited by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). To continuously improve our practice, teachers also work towards the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers, from proficient teacher to lead teacher level.
The delivery of quality curriculum, pedagogy (teaching methods) and assessment is ensured by our system of schools through the provision of contemporary NESA accredited professional learning in a range of modes. Our Centres of Excellence offer online learning and external face-to-face courses, and timely, collaborative and relevant in-situ learning take place within the context of each classroom. Sydney Catholic Schools’ teachers are strongly committed to their ongoing learning, with many having completed, or are currently undertaking, postgraduate studies in areas related to curriculum, student wellbeing, special education, theology, pastoral care and leadership.
At St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School Marsfield our teachers are actively engaged in and committed to collaborative and professional learning. Ongoing involvement in professional learning is valued, with instructional coaches supporting teachers by working collaboratively in the classroom to observe and provide quality feedback to their colleagues. Teachers are also encouraged and supported to build networks K-12 beyond the school with other educators. Teachers’ capacity is developed in accordance with the requirements of current syllabus documents and the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
