TAFE Teacher Leader’s Workshop


This two-day workshop is the very best opportunity for new and veteran teacher leaders to share ideas, and get information needed for a successful year in TAFE. New teacher leaders will get foundational information, exciting tips, and shortcuts on managing their chapter in ways that will make life easier and more productive. All participants will gain a broader understanding of their important role as a teacher leader and earn required CPE hours in the process. We will also have information about region conferences, the 2019 Teach Tomorrow Summit, Competitive Event updates and what is new in TAFE. Come join us, connect with others, and get tips for a successful year.
