Graduate Teachers always find it challenging to undergo the procedures for Teachers Accreditation in Australia, and with a move from State Teaching Standards to National Teachers Registration, it is more of a pick-and-shovel. So, this book is an answer to the almost unending questions of any graduate teacher in Australia. It must be noted that you should and must read the prescribed documents set down by the Registration Board. However, if you want a gentle way into understanding the regulations this ebook is a must to read.
Smooth Measures into Teachers Registration
Matt as the author, an educator and a mentor is vehemently displayed and actually unquestionable in the orderly arranged presentation of his knowledge in the teaching profession as he simplifies the terms associated with the National Professional Teaching Standards.
“Overcoming Accreditation Disasters” is specifically written by Mattthew Green, to try to repudiate the conclusion drawn by “a study conducted in conditions that Support Early Career Teacher Resilience, 2010 which states that in Western countries we know that between 25% – 40% of Teachers are likely to leave the profession in the next five years” (p.4) Matt helps new teachers to evidence good professional practice “through real-life teachings, stories, innovative teaching resources, [succint description of how assessment works] and new teacher support programs and mentoring” (p.4).
The arrangement and language of the book
Matt divides the book into 3 different sections. Professional Knowledge [standards 1/2] focusing on you the teacher, knowing your subject thoroughly. Professional Practice [standards 3/4/5] focuses on the process of teaching and the implementation of engaging teaching programs and how the lessons are delivered. Plus the monitoring of student learning. Thirdly Professional Engagement [standards 6/7] which focuses on your ability to critically evaluate your professional career and continued professional development.
Creating “A walkthrough of each of the Teaching Standards” each catering for a distinctive problem starting from what Teachers Registration really is to the standards embedded in the whole process. For me, it is an extensive guide to take care of the readers’ difficulty in taking the Accreditation process as required by the National Professional Standard for Teachers, Australia.

Matt uses straightforward language throughout the book to capture all his evidences of professional practice, so as a reader, do not expect any sort of irrelevances that could, by any chance, bore you or get you mentally exhausted that you may feel you have not learnt anything at all. Throughout Matt creates and maintains a rapport with his reader.
Real life experiences of the author as a guide
The connection between the book and the author’s real-life experiences intertwine as you read the guide making it an easy read. A graduate teacher will quickly see Matt as a friend and a teacher who knows his craft, knowing that he is just not a writer who understands the standards needed by the Teachers Registration Board and pens it down but rather a professional who has experienced and can, therefore, relate to everything that he illustrates as he writes. In other words, this book is just not an abstract guide but an achievable and realistic one.
Solution to Teacher Accreditation process
One of the best ways to get evidence of teaching practices is reading this book. Apart from the tone being educational and motivational, the book is more informative accompanied with professional practices than the everyday standard list provided by the Teachers Registration Board. As a contribution to the supporting documents compiled by the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership Limited (AITSL), the Department of Education and Communities (DEC) and other agencies, this book is an enhancing material for graduate teachers who wish to step on higher gears in their teaching careers.
