2.What do courses for librarians or teacher-librarians reveal about the role?
Questions? How much of the role is learnt from qualifications – related study and how much from experience or professional learning? Do courses cover teaching reading promotion or information literacy programs?
In NSW, teachers (who meet criteria and apply) can become teacher-librarians with one year of part time study – NSW CSU Grad Cert in teacher-librarianship https://www.det.nsw.edu.au/employment/teachnsw/retrain/lib_info.htm#programoutline
