Please note that AITSL will be launching a new website on 25 July 2017 with enhanced functionality to help you easily find and access our content.

As a result, the Teacher Toolkit will be decommissioned shortly after the new website is live.

The Teacher Toolkit will continue to remain accessible online for a couple of weeks after the launch of the new website, but any links to resources within the Teacher Toolkit will no longer work.

All the Toolkit content will be available on the new AITSL website at and we encourage you to add our new site to your bookmarks.

If you encounter an issue or can’t find content you’re looking for in the new website, please contact us.

The Essential Guide for Professional Learning series unpacks the research behind key themes of the PL Charter. School leaders and teachers can use this series to reflect on and inform professional learning in their school.
