    • Our Mission

      The Learning Exchange is a centre for excellence providing all teachers access to a wide range of high quality resources, research and programs developed to support innovation and teacher learning in today’s world.

      The aims of the Learning Exchange are to:

      • promote and demonstrate quality teaching by providing teachers with access to high quality resources, both virtual and physical, targeted at improvement at class, school and system level
      • provide quality mentoring of teachers through the Leading Educator program
      • provide ongoing professional learning to teachers, including support of the system’s early career teacher programs and system leadership program
      • assist more experienced teachers to achieve voluntary accreditation at professional accomplishment and/or professional leadership levels, and support a range of professional learning communities (PLCs) connecting teachers across the system in support of quality teaching.
    • Our Facilities

      The Learning Exchange is equipped with high-end technology where modelled teaching can be viewed, captured and stored for sharing with others.

      A number of spaces support quality teaching. These include a modern library facility with a range of technologies for schools to utilise, a multimedia production suite and a ‘model’ learning environment where teachers can work with colleagues on developing teaching strategies. Two other learning exchange hub schools and the global community are also connected via state-of-the-art video conferencing. The exchange also operates a research unit and connects with the Jarara indigenous support unit.
