Pacific regional standards for teachers

The Standards have been developed to reflect the realities of teaching in the Pacific in the 21st century. They can be used to provide clear direction to policy makers, curriculum developers, assessment officers and teacher educators on what constitutes professional practice and expected pedagogical content knowledge of teachers; thus, providing guidance for review of teacher professional learning and development and assessment of pre-service teacher training graduates to ensure they meet the minimum standards for entry into the teaching profession. The Standards also establish a clear path for merit-based teacher placement and career advancement, shifting performance evaluation from an emphasis on educational qualification and years of teaching to observable performance and competency related to facilitating student learning.
