RELIEF TEACHER SKILL BUILDING AND NETWORKING EVENT

ALL RELIEF STAFF IN JUNIOR PRIMARY, PRIMARY, MIDDLE, SECONDARY SCHOOLS & SPECIAL EDUCATION SETTINGS - EVENING SESSION

FACILITATORS - MEL WHITE, RELIEF TEACHER & KYMBERLY LOUISE, BEHAVIOURAL SCIENTIST

This is a unique event designed to support relief teaching staff in multiple aspects of securing and providing quality relief work. In place of a traditional presentation style, this workshop will facilitate participants to rotate through stations where various aspects of relief teaching will be addressed through brainstorming & sharing of experiences and strategies.

Upon registration, participants will be emailed with a link to a survey where they can nominate their areas of interest. The stations will then be set up to reflect the interests of the participants. These may include topics for Early Career relief teachers (e.g. ‘How to get relief work’ and ‘what to find out when starting at a new school’) through to more practical aspects of teaching such as ‘what to do if no notes have been left’, and always useful tips on supporting cooperative behaviour in the relief teaching context.

In an attempt to make this event as accessible and affordable as possible for relief teachers, we have incorporated these aspects into our planning of the event:

  • This will be an evening session (to avoid having to miss a day of potential work)
  • This event will not be catered (in order to keep costs down for those not attached to schools)
  • It will be held at the most central venue we were able to access (that also has parking facilities)

Certificates will be provided that include reference to the Teacher Standards that apply to this workshop.
