ACCREDITATION FOR TEACHERS & LEADERSHIP

Walker Learning has been implemented in Australia and internationally for over 20 years. It is Australia’s first evidence-based and researched play and individual inquiry-based pedagogy for use in Australian and international schools as well as early learning centres.

Walker Learning is a personalised and holistic approach to teaching. It underpins all curriculum areas and encourages children to become active participants in their learning. When implemented throughout the whole school, the nurturing and inclusive basis for the model provides a seamless transition from childcare to preschool to early and upper primary school and beyond.

Schools and parents can be assured that staff members included in our Educator and Leadership Accreditation Directory have completed accreditation training and received mentoring from us or one of our approved facilitators.

WHAT DOES ACCREDITATION DEMONSTRATE?

Teachers and leaders who are accredited have demonstrated the ability to plan using Walker Learning documentation, use the environment learning spaces applicable for ECE, F-2 or 3-6 and demonstrate all the key elements as listed in the accreditation criteria. Accreditation is dependent upon set criteria being met and assessed by our Walker Learning consultant.

Accredited practitioners of Walker Learning can work towards becoming Walker Learning facilitators which will provide opportunities for training roles within our organisation. Accreditation can be undertaken on an individual basis or as a whole school approach. We only use Walker Learning Accredited schools as our Study Tour schools to ensure participants observe the highest standards of Walker Learning practice.

The Accreditation Process

Walker Learning extends accreditation to educators in the early childhood years (Prep, Reception or Kindy) to Year 2, primary educators (Years 3 to 6) and leadership.

To preserve the integrity of the pedagogy, accreditation takes a minimum of 20 hours to ensure the high standards of Walker Learning practice are preserved.

The journey to accreditation is marked by achievement milestones (Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 = Full Accreditation). Certificates with be presented when each milestone is completed.

How do I start my Accreditation?

To begin your accreditation journey, register for a study tour and necessary PD hours, alternatively join us on our 2-day Walker Learning Intensive and complete 10 hours of PD in one go.

To complete the accreditation requirements, all you would need to do is attend a study tour and book mentoring.
