Duo re­dress­ing bal­ance in teacher train­ing

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

TWO res­i­dents are work­ing to bridge the gap in teacher train­ing in Perth.

Penrhos Col­lege teach­ers Natalie Ni­cholls and Ka­t­rina Pol­lock launched their own com­pany Im­pact PD Events to bring more speak­ers and pro- fes­sional train­ers to WA.

“I have taught in Perth, Mel­bourne and Lon­don, and there seems to be a huge gap in the pre­mium mar­ket for teacher train­ing in WA,” Ms Ni­cholls said.

“The two largest pri­vate PD com­pa­nies are based on the east coast and it seems WA teach­ers haven’t al­ways been of­fered the same ac­cess to in­ter­na­tional and Aus­tralian speak­ers.
