The MTDS framework includes a curated set of 30 competencies (knowledge and skills) of teaching. The competencies have been organized into six domains of teaching, which represent roles or lenses of teaching. The domains provide context for the competencies. The domains and competencies remain the same throughout the teaching career. Each of the 30 competencies have been deconstructed and then progressed across six levels of the career to provide level-specific learning statements. These statements are now being organized into career-spanning learning opportunities for teachers to increase their teaching capacity across the career.
MTDS is Career-Spanning Learning
The MTDS is designed to meet learning needs of teachers across the career span, allowing teachers to continuously increase teaching capacity through growth and development opportunities. Each of the 30 MTDS Competencies includes level-specific learning statements, which are organized to provide a progression of learning leading to mastery of each competency. These statements have also been curated within levels to provide support for those developing programming for teacher learning. Visit each of the levels below to explore the MTDS learning as it progresses across the career.
