The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers is a public statement of what constitutes teacher quality.

The Standards define the work of teachers and make explicit the elements of high-quality, effective teaching in 21st-century schools, which result in improved educational outcomes for students.

The Standards do this by providing a framework that makes clear the knowledge, practice and professional engagement required across teachers’ careers.
