SLANZA is pleased to announce that a new resource for school library staff is now available from our website here: Resources | Professional Development.
Many of our members, and others working in New Zealand school libraries, take part in LIANZA’s Professional Registration scheme. Maintaining a journal as part of the process of revalidation can be very challenging, and SLANZA is keen to support our members undergoing that process. We hope that the document we have published today, which specifically targets school library staff who are revalidating their LIANZA registration, goes some way towards that.
The document provides examples and practical ideas you can use to develop your skills and experience across the bodies of knowledge, and also to document evidence of that professional growth.
The foundation document for LIANZA’s Professional Registration scheme, and a range of related information, is available from LIANZA's website.
SLANZA very gratefully acknowledges the help of members who have contributed to this document, particularly Donna Watt (Invercargill City Libraries) and Trish Webster (Rangitoto College).
We are currently establishing a network of mentors who have volunteered (via our Pool of Talent) to provide support to those working through the revalidation process. We’ll have more information about this for you later in the term.
