Like most businesses, COVID-19 has impacted the way the Victorian Institute of Teaching is conducting business.
VIT has been able to maintain delivery of its regulatory functions and keep phone lines open – albeit with some changes to our telephone numbers (as we are working away from the office).
Part of VIT’s role is to investigate the conduct, competence and fitness to teach of registered teachers, and whether a registered teacher’s ability to practice as a teacher or early childhood teacher is seriously affected because of an impairment.
The Victorian Institute of Teaching have entered into a memorandum of understanding with the Victorian Registration & Qualifications Authority.
In three real case studies, see how VIT has taken disciplinary action under its new teacher registration scheme.
A VIT investigation into allegations that a teacher failed to maintain a professional relationship with one of her students resolved yesterday in the Wangaratta Magistrates’ Court.
