The Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) has welcomed the findings of a report into professional learning for school teachers released by the Victorian Auditor General’s Office (VAGO).
The audit examined whether VIT and the Department of Education and Training (DET) have a clear and accurate understanding of the professional learning that occurs in Victorian government schools, including its planning, cost and impact, so they can best target and support professional learning to drive better student outcomes.
We’re pleased to note that the responses where overwhelmingly positive, with 87% of respondents indicating that you were satisfied with the overall email invoice notification process. A further 90% of registered teachers were satisfied with the timing of the email notifications, and 92% were satisfied with the online payment system.
