PRESENTER APPLICATION

BECOME AN ASSESSOR

The AUSTSWIM Assessor module has been specifically designed to guide teachers through all aspects of the AUSTSWIM assessor role. AUSTSWIM assessors judge the teaching competency of candidates after they have gained an appropriate amount of experience under the supervision of their training supervisor/s.

In order for AUSTSWIM Teachers to be eligible to assess a trainee teacher’s competency, they are required to undertake and complete an online module. 

The online module is free of charge and gives AUSTSWIM Teachers an automatic two hours of professional development towards their teacher licence renewal (minimum requirements apply). 

AUSTSWIM is highly appreciative of the enormous contribution of our assessors, who volunteer their time to assist candidates through to completion of their licence.
