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.
The Victorian Institute of Teaching has revised its Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education (LANTITE) policy, and we are pleased to advise the Minister for Education has approved the new 2019 LANTITE policy.
Professional learning in workplaces can take many forms. Workshops and seminars are one way for teachers to learn, however, most learning will occur when teachers are working in collaboration with colleagues.
If you are provisionally registered, or interested in mentoring provisionally registered teachers, VIT will be running PRT seminars and the Effective Mentoring Program in 2019.
AITSL has produced a series of videos featuring teachers illustrating, through their practice, how they meet the various descriptors of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
