The VIT accreditation process adheres to a nationally-agreed approach to accreditation, endorsed by the Education Council in 2015.
The process ensures all initial teacher education (ITE) programs meet the Australian standards outlined in the Accreditation of initial teacher education programs in Australia: Standards and Procedures (AITSL). These standards are designed to ensure all graduates of ITE programs have the knowledge, skills and experience to make a positive impact on student learning.
