The Minister for Education, the Hon. James Merlino MP has released a video message for school professionals and parents to help them prepare for the 1 August 2016 implementation of child safe standards.
Australia’s largest education focused event – the National FutureSchools Expo - is coming to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre over 23 – 24 March 2017.
A crucial part of the role of all school and early childhood teachers is to respond effectively to children and young people whose safety and wellbeing may be at risk, or who are in need of protection.
All staff working in early childhood settings and schools within Victoria, particularly those with mandatory reporting obligations, are strongly encouraged to regularly undertake and complete online modules.
Congratulations to our teachers who were awarded with Australia Day Honours. You are an inspiration for your leaders.
It is wonderful to see registered teachers being recognised by one of Australia’s most prestigious awards, and it shows how much the community recognises the importance of and respects those working in the education sector.
In 2016 90% of the 126,000 Victorian teachers submitted their online tasks by the deadline of 30 September. This is an increase on last year’s figures, particularly among the teachers who were due for their five yearly National Police History Check.
