What is AISNSW’s role in advocacy and representation on behalf of the sector?
AISNSW has a key role in advocating for and representing the needs and interests of schools and teachers in the independent sector during this period of curriculum reform. There are also a number of opportunities for teachers from member schools to have direct input into the process of reform.
AISNSW Advocacy and Representation
Key AISNSW executives have a place on the Board of NESA as well as on various curriculum reform committees and steering groups.
In addition, AISNSW team leaders represent the sector’s views through participation in Subject Expert Reference Groups, amongst others.
AISNSW also works closely with NESA to submit feedback on draft syllabuses on behalf of the sector, disseminate information to schools about aspects of the curriculum reform process, provide advice about and develop support materials for teachers and provide opportunities for ongoing professional learning throughout the reform process.
