Teachers share a special responsibility in preparing young people to lead successful and productive lives. The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers reflect and build on national and international evidence that a teacher’s effectiveness has a powerful impact on students, with a broad consensus that teacher quality is the single-most important in-school factor influencing student achievement. Effective teachers can be a source of inspiration and, equally importantly, provide a dependable and consistent influence on young people as they make choices about further education, work and life.
