Fit for purpose legislative framework

Together with the Department of Education and Training (DET), we are reforming our legislative framework to enable VIT to fulfil government objectives, meet community expectations and effectively discharge our obligations.

What's the impact?

A revised legislative framework will streamline VIT’s operation and ensure that it represents modern and best regulatory practice.

What have we done?

  • We have developed a new strategic plan to include a reframed purpose and vision that reflects our focus on child safety and wellbeing, community expectations and teacher quality.
  • VIT have commenced working with the Department of Justice and Regulation – Working with Children – to implement changes that ensure VIT’s practices align with the Education Legislation Amendment (Victorian Institute of Teaching, TAFE and Other Matters) Act 2018 (Vic), which received Royal Assent on 7 August 2018.

What's next?

  • VIT is committed to collaborating with the DET to reform the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic) so our procedures represent best regulatory practice.
