The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) exist to assist all Australian teachers in growing and developing their professional knowledge and expertise. Teaching Big History, the BHP teachers’ course, is mapped against the APST and provides evidence of your continuing professional growth and development.
Once you have completed Teaching Big History, you will receive a certificate indicating nine hours of completed professional development. On the following pages, you can see how the content and professional learning covered in the six sessions of Teaching Big History align with the APST. This certification can be used as evidence for state-based teacher registration such as The Victorian Institute of Teachers (VIT) and The Queensland College of Teachers (QCT).
