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.

Our teachers are constantly developing their knowledge and skills. Each week, all teachers take part in professional learning activities that are tailored to their needs. 

In addition our staff development days during the year allow us to focus on college priorities. Recently these have included literacy, and quality assessment. Staff also attend professional development activities outside of the college and many of our staff are involved in HSC marking; this ensures that the knowledge within the staff body remains current for the benefit of our students.
