New Zealand's Professional Growth Cycle

About this event

By Jane Warnock

The introduction of the Professional Growth Cycle in New Zealand as the ‘reimaged’ approach to ‘appraisal’ has left many in the education sector wondering. In this free webinar, Jane shares the story and a range of resources and links into what a Professional Growth Cycle could look like for your setting.

Jane's journey with the Professional Growth Cycle

As the Educational Leader within Tūī Early Learners, Jane has been collaborating using a ‘model of inquiry’ alongside the Centre Leaders and Head Teachers to see what the newly introduced Professional Growth Cycle (Teaching Council of Aotearoa, New Zealand) could look like, sound like, feel like for teachers.

Throughout this inquiry Jane has sourced information from educational gurus including Childspace and their own Professional Growth Cycle resources, Teaching Council, drawn on literature, engaged in webinars, networking and korero to put together a framework that focuses on kaiako growth, development, collaboration and of which also aligns to those important Professional Standards.

In addition, the value of designing one’s own Professional Growth Cycle is where links can be made to those invaluable pedagogical early childhood documents, Te Whāriki (2017) as just one example, that hold us so accountable for our every teaching action and in being alongside tamariki.
