As engagement with learners begins occur in a remote environment, establishing good practices around professional communication is vital.
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.
If you are provisionally registered, interested in mentoring provisionally registered teachers, or coordinating your mentors, find out when and where you can attend Mentoring programs, a Mentor Coordinators Workshop and PRT Seminars.
The Victorian Institute of Teaching is committed to improving the registration process for both principals and teachers. Consequently, we are developing a new teacher registration system, named Nexus.
If you’re a provisionally registered teacher (PRT), our inquiry examples and tips on how to present your evidence might make the process easier for you.
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.
