The AITSL promotes excellence in teaching and school leadership. As part of this role they:
- Are charged with the national accreditation of teachers
- Undertake and explore research into quality teaching
John Hattie is widely known for his book Visible Learning, synthesising more than 800,000 research studies on student achievement. He has also been involved with developing teacher standards in other countries.
John Fleming has been credited with turning around the results at Bellfield Primary School, for his advocacy of explicit teaching and for his book Towards A Moving School.
Both men are well placed to lift the quality, professionalisation and status of the teaching profession.
