Relief Teacher Association needed to offer teachers professional learning that they could complete any time and anywhere at a price that was affordable given so many are under employed.

Staying relevant and connected amongst members within a thriving professional learning network

The Challenge

In today's ever-changing technological landscape, missing to update one's professional knowledge is equivalent to remaining stagnant and simply waiting to be replaced.

Two of the key challenges for relief teachers are:

  • Connecting with other teachers and feeling part of the teaching community.
  • Accessing quality, affordable professional development opportunities to maintain their teaching accreditation.

The Solution

The RTA launched their first accredited PD courses on OpenLearning in 2015. With now over 80 hours of learning across their suite of courses, the RTA has been able to ensure that their members needs are met by providing relief teachers across Australia with:

  • Access to on-demand learning covered by their annual membership fee if they are an RTA member;
  • The ability for paid single course enrolments for non-RTA members;
  • A community of teachers to connect with; and,
  • A broad range of PD courses that spans the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

Teachers can choose from a range of interactive and inspiring courses to fulfil their passions and meet their needs, at anytime and from anywhere

The Results

Since launching in 2015, the RTA have managed to:

  • Attract 13,778+ unique enrolments into its 40+ online courses, with a high engagement rate of 18 online course enrolments per learner.
  • Enable 50,000+ of its members to have access to the online course. This helps RTA fulfil their goal of creating a thriving community of practice amongst teachers while enabling the opportunity to maintain and develop accreditation.
