Professional Learning at the IEU

In response to member feedback, we’re delivering Professional Learning a little differently from Term 4, 2019.

If you have five or more people interested in a particular session, you can still get access to our excellent catalogue of Professional Learning by booking a session with our Education Officer. 

Even prior to COVID-19 government restrictions on gatherings, your union invested in online technology in order to service all members across Western Australia by offering access to PL through the union’s video-conferencing facilities.

You can request a session from the following list and participate via video-conference using our Vidyo app. We also have sessions scheduled throughout the term and school holidays. Please check our Events calendar for those sessions.

Book a course with our Education Officers on any of the following topics:

  • Classroom/Behaviour Management
    Join us for a look at effective classroom and behaviour management – a skill that all teachers need to continually enhance. IEU Education Officers will give you some practical tips to add to your practice. Hone your classroom skills in a relaxing environment. We can tailor this to the primary or secondary classroom context. Suitable for teachers and Education Assistants
  • Differentiation
    Education Officers will facilitate a practical session providing the opportunity to share strategies that foster an inclusive environment for all students. Sessions include differentiating in the primary and secondary classroom, and a separate session for those planning for and teaching IEP students.
  • Delegate Training
    Delegates play a key role in workplace wellbeing. Education Officers present three courses on building your knowledge and power in the workplace. These cover the main role of the delegate, building power to influence positive change in the workplace, and increasing your industrial knowledge. Includes sub-sessions on How to be an effective delegate, Building power in the work place and Understanding your Award or Agreement.
  • Teacher Registration
    Need help transitioning from provisional to full registration, or in renewing your registration? Join Education Officers for a one-stop-shop session that covers all TRB requirements including the registration process.
    One on one mentoring also available upon request.
  • Report Writing
    A practical look at where do I start, what do I write, and how can I individualise my reports? Join Education Officers as together we explore and develop report writing skills that all teachers need to engage in as a twice yearly event. An opportunity to network and share best practice.

All of our Professional Learning addresses the AITSL Professional Standards for Teachers and you will receive a certificate of participation.
