[Deadline Passed for New Applications] Take part in our Highly Accomplished ICT Educator program

PLANE is looking for sixty NSW primary and secondary teachers to take part in our Highly Accomplished ICT Educator program. This is a voluntary position that will help with applicants own professional learning and leadership skills.

Details on how to start your application are below. A PLANE Professional Learning Leader will contact succesful applicants by 29th of May 2012.

Expression of interest deadline passed

A massive thank you to the 400+ people who applied to take part in the Highly Accomplished Educator Program. PLANE will be in contact regarding your submissions.


  1. We can support many more HAICTE than previously thought.
    Yes the 60 HAICTE called for in the initial expression of interest seemed very inadequate given the 400+ expressions of interest. So we have waved our magic wand and can now support (and fund) many additional HAICTE on PLANE.
  2. A number of Educators, especially those who are not classified as new scheme teachers expressed concern about the requirement to be:
          -Accredited against higher levels of the national teaching standards;or
          -Aspiring towards accreditation against higher levels of the national teaching standards.


    PLANE has taken this concern on board and decided to remove this requirement.

    Fora further level of detail on this update please see this blog post.

  2. Hi,

    I'm a little confused. I've registered my expression of Interest. Is there something else I have to do before the 28th? (eg Step 2 and submitting a principal's authority?). If so I cant find links to these things anywhere.

    • Hi Deborah, that's all we need from your end :) A member of the PLANE team will be in touch after applications close. We've had a huge response from educators about the program, but we will be getting back to everyone that applied. If you have any other questions let us know here and I can put you in touch with someone via email.

  3. Will people be chosen on merit or a "first in, best dressed" basis?
    And thanks, if I have any other questions I'll contact you again :)

    • The program organisers are selecting applicants, I'm not entirely sure what their processes are. If it is okay with you, could I send you a email tomorrow once I've clarified with the team? I can confirm we will be, and are very excited to be able to, involve more educators in PLANE due to the number of applications so please trust this is not the be all and end all.

  4. I hope I am not late! I would love to be involved with this and help where I can. I just sent in a real quick EOI. I am currently the ICT Mentor at my school working with iPads and IWB….changing mindsets to think pedagogy rather than technology. ;) anyway hope I can help somehow.


    Ena ;)

  5. Ive got my boarding pass, but I cant seem to find any reference to log on details for a username and password.

  6. Expression of Interest for HA ICT program. If the magic wand is waived again….I am putting my hand up as expressing an interest in applying. Thanks…Karl Easton.
