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.

Staff Professional LearningHere at St Joseph the Worker Catholic Primary School Auburn South, we take a holistic approach to professional learning.

All staff participate in regular professional learning to develop specialised skills to support the academic needs of each and every one of our students. Literacy and Numeracy are the foundational skills that our students will require to be flourishing, lifelong participants in education, employment and the community.

This is why teacher excellence in literacy and numeracy is a focus at our school as we work to improve outcomes for every student, in every classroom.
