The Professional Teachers' Association of the Northern Territory (PTANT) is committed to supporting and enhancing the professionalism of teachers and the quality of education in the Northern Territory by linking with and supporting member associations, giving and gaining strength through involvement, cooperative effort and diversity of their individual contributions. The Northern Territory Professional Learning Conference (the Conference), coordinated by the PTANT and Member Associations, is a one-day event that offers professional development across the curriculum and all levels of schooling. This event has previously been known as the Festival of Teaching. This year, the Steering Committee resolved to change the name to the Northern Territory Professional Learning Conference to align with the professionalism of the event and encourage a wider teaching community to attend. This year, the theme to the event is "Innovation - Hope-Filled Futures".
On Saturday, 26 August 2023 as many as 350 educators will gather at Dripstone Middle School to make the most of this one-day professional learning program, which will include:
- Keynote Speaker Louka Parry, CEO + Founder of The Learning Future
- Keynote Speaker Bill Zammit, Practical Happiness Speaker
- Up to 40 workshops spanning the curriculum
- Exhibits providing interaction with educational resources and education support organisations
This will be the sixth professional learning event hosted by the PTANT. The goal of the Conference's dedicated Steering Committee, which includes 11 representatives from 11 different professional teaching associations, is for the Conference to be the most desired professional learning event of the year for Northern Territory Educators.
