School Library Association NSW partners with Syba Academy in 2015!

Syba Academy and School Library Association NSW (SLANSW) are pleased to announce an exciting professional learning partnership in 2015. This partnership will have a positive impact on the quality, availability and variety of professional learning opportunities for NSW Teacher Librarians in 2015.

Phyl Williamson director of Syba Academy said "Developing partnerships is at the heart of what it means to be a teacher librarian in the 21st Century. We are honoured to be partnering with NSW's peak teacher librarian body and excited about what this partnership will mean for NSW Teacher Librarians."

As a result of this partnership SLANSW members will receive:

  • Professional learning of outstanding quality that is relevant to issues faced by the profession today, accredited by NSW Institute of Teachers to AITSL National Professional Standards for Teachers
  • Access to Syba Academy's professional learning portal for completed seminar materials
  • Access to Syba Academy's Consolidated Learning in Practice (CLiPit!) program, for support in applying new knowledge in your school
  • Discounted, fully accredited professional learning in metropolitan and regional areas

"Quality professional learning is Syba Academy's core business so while they seamlessly organise all our Professional Learning, the SLANSW committee can focus on supporting our members through advocacy of our profession," said Michelle Jensen, President of SLANSW.

This is a welcome announcement in light of the upcoming changes to teacher accreditation requirements which come into effect in 2015. This partnership will provide SLANSW members with high quality, fully accredited professional learning that is easily accessible in their local area.
