Professional Standards Elaborations

SPEVI Professional Standards Elaborations for Specialist Teachers (Vision Impairment), Career Stages, 2nd Edition, 2016

The SPEVI Elaborations describe the minimum levels of Professional Knowledge, Professional Practice and Professional Engagement for Specialist Teachers (Vision Impairment), across the career stages of “Graduate”, “Proficient”, “Highly Accomplished” and “Lead” teacher. The Standards Elaborations “elaborate” on the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership [AITSL], 2010). The AITSL Professional Standards are endorsed by the Ministers of Education in all states and territories, and are used for accreditation of initial teacher programs for graduate teachers and for teacher registration and registration renewal -see http://www.aitsl.edu.au/.

Development of the Professional Standards Elaborations has been guided by the Disability Standards for Education (Australian Government Attorney-General’s Department, 2005), and the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Australian Government ComLaw, 2004).
