2020 Mentoring Programs and PRT Seminars

4 FEBRUARY 2020

Mentoring Programs

If you are interested in mentoring provisionally registered teachers (PRTs), a number of programs and a new workshop will be available in 2020.

The Department of Education and Training (DET) will again offer cross sector access to their two-day Mentoring Program. VIT will work closely with DET, Independent Schools Victoria (ISV) and the Catholic Education Office (CEO) in an effort to increase the reach of our mentoring training in 2020.

The Effective Mentoring Program

The Effective Mentoring Program (EMP) comprises a two-day professional learning program developed and delivered in partnership with the Department of Education and Training. The EMP is open to (fully) registered teachers working in government, Catholic and independent schools and early childhood services.

In 2020, there will be both separate and combined programs for school and early childhood mentors. The EMP content across two days is a blend of the skills and knowledge fundamental to mentoring and knowledge about the VIT process to move from provisional to (full) registration. 

If you have already completed a VIT-trained mentor program, refresher courses are available.

The EMP will be administered by Cambridge Education, who will be co-delivering the program with VIT on behalf of DET. 

Teachers interested in mentoring are required to attend both days.

While teachers from all sectors are welcome to register for the Effective Mentoring Program, VIT has been working closely with the Victorian Catholic Diocese and Independent Schools Victoria to extend the reach of mentoring programs across Victoria.
