Teachers to undergo annual reviews

AUSTRALIA'S teachers will undergo annual reviews from next year after education ministers agreed to a national framework in Sydney on Friday.

Federal Education Minister Peter Garrett said the new framework would assess teachers against the National Professional Standards.

Individual schools and systems will decide what form the reviews take.

"Once implemented, the new agreement signed off today means that schools will offer their teachers feedback on their performance, based on evidence including classroom observation, parental and student feedback and student results," Mr Garrett said.

"Teachers will have to set goals for the year and will be helped to reach their goals. Those who are found to be under-performing or who need extra support will be given access to more training and development opportunities."

Copies of the framework are available at aitsl.ed.au.
