As part of Sydney Catholic Schools, we employ highly qualified and competent teachers who are accredited by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). To continuously improve our practice, teachers also work towards the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers, from proficient teacher to lead teacher level.

The delivery of quality curriculum, pedagogy (teaching methods) and assessment is ensured by our system of schools through the provision of contemporary NESA accredited professional learning in a range of modes. Our Centres of Excellence offer online learning and external face-to-face courses, and timely, collaborative and relevant in-situ learning take place within the context of each classroom. Sydney Catholic Schools’ teachers are strongly committed to their ongoing learning, with many having completed, or are currently undertaking, postgraduate studies in areas related to curriculum, student wellbeing, special education, theology, pastoral care and leadership.

At St Brigid’s Catholic Primary School Marrickville, we view ourselves as lifelong learners. The Leadership Team facilitates professional learning. The school’s vision for learning is continuously developed at staff meetings led by the Literacy/Numeracy Coach and Leadership Team members. We focus on developing shared beliefs, understanding and a common language to underpin alignment of all aspects of the school’s work with essential practices in teaching and learning.
