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.
