Title from title screen (viewed on 24/06/2019). Includes bibliographical references. Nationally certified Highly Accomplished and Lead Teachers (HALTs) are expert teachers and reflective practitioners who lead and support colleagues towards better outcomes for learners. As of the end of 2018, 573 teachers across Australia were certified as HALTs. A HALT Census recently conducted by AITSL, along with a series of interviews, have provided a national insight for the first time into who HALTs are, where they are working, and the impact of certification on the profession. In addition to benefiting the teachers themselves, these findings indicate that having a certified HALT in a school who is recognised for their teaching expertise: improves learning outcomes, contributes to an increased culture of learning amongst staff, and enables quality teaching to impact across the school.
