NEAS’ Professional Development supports the ELT community through advancing best practices to all areas of ELT delivery and support. Our PD supports all individuals working with and alongside ELT institutions to help them meet their quality goals as well as expand their PD capacity.
Our 2020 Professional Development suite continues to evolve in order to provide the support needed by the ELT community.
NEAS Australia is continuing to support our members and the ELT Community during COVID19 with a clear message and purpose: we have a plan, and we will get through this together. Thank you to our members, partners and stakeholders who have in turn supported NEAS.
Each year, we look forward to hosting
our members, partners and stakeholders at the NEAS Management Conference to
advance global quality assurance in English Language Teaching and come together
as a community.

Teachers are lifelong learners. All staff who work at an education provider value and engage in learning and teaching on a day to day basis. NEAS recognises that professional development of all staff is an essential element in the continuous improvement of an educational provider.
Professional development gives teachers and professional staff the opportunity to reflect on their practices, skills and knowledge. It also challenges ones long-held assumptions and beliefs, providing fresh ideas and introducing innovations in an environment which never stands still. As part of our quality assurance services to the ELT community, NEAS offers a range of Professional Development services for all staff including our annual Conference, NEAS Online and QLS workshops and webinars.
