    Implementation Considerations

    Target population: Teachers across primary and secondary schools

    Program adaptability: The delivery, scheduling and timeline of the on-demand component of the program can be adapted and modified based on the needs of the school. Participants will be guided through a series of activities and exercises which will encourage them to adapt their learning into strategies addressing their local context and student needs.

    Staffing: The on-demand modules can be undertaken according to a flexible schedule. Backfilling may be required for the teachers to engage in the on-demand modules during class time.

    Training requirements: The time requirements are 14 hours for the on-demand modules. This can be completed over the school year.

    Factors to consider: There is no minimum number of participants required. Internet connection and devices are required.

    Australian context: This program has been developed and applied in Australia.
