In South Australia we have a bold ambition. We want a world class public education system that delivers growth for every child, in every class, in every school. Orbis is a catalyst for leaders and teachers to establish a culture of continuous professional learning within their school. A culture where professional learning is aligned with a school’s improvement priorities and embedded into teachers. Through the establishment of Orbis we have the architecture to deliver highly effective professional learning that will build the teaching profession for generations to come.
