“The quality of an Education System cannot exceed the
Quality of its Teachers”
Attracting and rigorously selecting high quality teachers
is key
Teacher professional development – pre-Service and
continual – is critical to building professionalism and a
teacher-led culture of excellence
Competitive remuneration, performance-based
recognition, multiple career pathways and structured
performance management are key to retain, spur and
guide the development of good teachers
Good leaders are critical, and need to be systematically
identified, groomed and appraised over time
