Leadership and Whole School Accreditation.

Walker Learning recognises teachers, leaders, and schools achieving Accreditation as EXPERT PRACTITIONERS in The Walker Learning Approach. Walker Learning Partnership Schools receive complimentary mentoring and collaborate with Walker Learning to host Walker Learning Study Tours.

Walker Learning has been implemented in Australia and internationally for over 25 years. It is Australia’s first major play and individual inquiry-based pedagogy which is evidence-based and researched.

Walker Learning is a personalised and holistic intentional teaching and learning approach.
It underpins all curriculum areas and encourages children to become active participants in their learning. Teachers and leaders who are accredited have completed the required professional learning modules AND demonstrated the ability to plan using Walker Learning documentation, use the environment learning spaces applicable for F/K/R-2 or 3-6 and demonstrate all the key elements as listed in the accreditation criteria. Accreditation is dependent upon set criteria being met and assessed by our Walker Learning consultant.

Teachers and Leaders who attain Accreditation are recognised as EXPERT PRACTITIONERS in the Walker Learning Approach.
