Staff Professional Development
The ongoing professional development of our staff forms a critical element in the delivery of effective education and pastoral care at The Rockhampton Grammar School. Within its active professional learning culture, an extensive annual programme, delivered by highly qualified educational consultants and researchers, informs all aspects of the School. In 2012 an innovative programme was introduced at The Rockhampton Grammar School in which Teachers undertake a Master’s Degree with Griffith University as part of their annual professional development studies. It is the only programme of its kind in Australia.
The RGS Professional Development Program has been developed because we believe that Student excellence at RGS is grounded in Teaching excellence.
By partnering with Griffith and investing in staff professional development RGS is enhancing an already engaging, motivating, and stimulating learning environment. (Read about the coverage in The Australian newspaper.
Our teachers' participation acknowledges in a very tangible way the importance we place on the integration of theory with professional practice which will develop new and different learning opportunities for every student every day.
By continuously improving RGS teaching practice through academic staff professional development, and critical reflection of School performance, we will ensure that our students continue to achieve to the best of their abilities.
