An advanced qualifications pathway for secondary teachers (2007) 2007 Annual conference paper. It is one thing for governments to sing the praises of a highly qualified, highly skilled secondary teaching profession; it is another thing entirely to get them to pay for it. The professional learning landscape for teachers is littered with the debris of populist ideas, poorly implemented and done on the cheap. If the government is serious about its professed commitment to effective teaching, it will need to do more than talk about it.

Behaviour, behaviour, behaviour – It's a class act! (2014) 2014 Annual conference paper. After the 2013 Annual Conference expressed concern about the way PB4L and related initiatives were operating in schools, this paper explains how these behavioural initiatives are being implemented, describes some of the challenges in turning theory into effective practice and recommends PPTA adopt a set of behavioural guidelines to empower branches to have more say about how behaviour management frameworks operate in their schools.

Best practice behaviour management: A view from the literature (2007) Written by Patty Towl for the NZPPTA
While this review is a small study by one researcher over six weeks, it found general agreement across all of the literature that teachers need an enhanced skill set to manage the challenging behaviour prevalent in New Zealand schools.
The review suggests that managing challenging student behaviour is not about personal competence; it is a school climate and professional development issue.
