Preparing teachers for a fulfilling career
The new Teacher Competency Standards Framework introduces a set of quality standards for in-service primary and middle school teachers. This framework facilitates a common understanding of expectations, makes assessments and promotions more transparent, and helps teachers in developing their professional career. The new framework clearly describes what teachers are expected to know and able to do at different stages of their career. It establishes specific benchmarks that make it easier for teachers to plan their professional growth and for administrators to reward effective practices.
