Professional Development

The Austin School provides specialised educational services to students aged five to eighteen years who have significant emotional, physical and/or psychiatric problems. Teachers work closely with multidisciplinary teams from Austin CYMHS and Austin Health and liaise with the student’s home school.

The Austin School provides professional development for teachers and educational support staff focused around supporting students with significant social and emotional issues in schools and managing difficult situations for both primary and secondary settings.
