The

MaternityTeacher

PaternityTeacher

Project

Inspiring, empowering and connecting teachers choosing to complete continued professional development whilst on parental leave.

We believe that parents are entitled to make decisions that support their wellbeing and the wellbeing of their families.  Wellbeing means different things for different people: for some, this means maintaining a sense of that “teacher” identity during the “break” of parental leave.

We think creatively about the type of activities that have a positive impact on our students and can therefore be considered effective professional learning, and we love exploring the simplicity or problem-solving challenge (!) of enjoying these with babies and toddlers.

Our community has a significant impact on the culture of schools, influencing organisations to be more equal and more inclusive.  The ramifications of our work make teaching not only a family friendly career choice for mothers and fathers, but also improves working conditions for all teachers.
