Professional learning

Current professional learning opportunities

The VCAA recognises the importance of support for teachers and education professionals during the transition from AusVELS to the Victorian Curriculum F–10. A series of online professional learning sessions has been designed to help schools and teachers familiarise themselves with the new curriculum. Deep familiarisation with the Victorian Curriculum F–10 is essential for turning the curriculum into a comprehensive teaching and learning program.

The Victorian Curriculum F–10: Revised curriculum planning and reporting guidelines (pdf - 1,010.58kb) provide advice for Victorian schools on the effective use of the curriculum to develop whole-school teaching and learning plans and to report student learning achievement. The series also includes opportunities to explore the elements of quality curriculum planning and the implications for student reporting.

Online Professional Learning sessions are  now available for Term 2, 2017. Subscribe to the F-10 Curriculum Updates. to keep up to date with new sessions.

Each session has a capacity of 500 registrations. Schools are encouraged to register once for sessions they wish to attend and to organise their technical resources to attend as a group, if appropriate. All sessions commence at 3.45pm and will run for an hour.

Statewide Professional Learning sessions are now available

As part of the Education State support for implementation of the Victorian Curriculum F-10, these sessions are presented by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) in collaboration with the Department of Education and Training (DET). A full list of sessions is now available. These sessions have been made available to Government schools.

Thinking about Critical and Creative Thinking

The VCAA is pleased to offer teachers the opportunity to attend a whole day workshop on Critical and Creative Thinking. To be held Thursday 8 June, the aim of this workshop is to deepen teachers' understanding of the new Critical and Creative Thinking curriculum and explore how to explicitly teach and assess the knowledge and skills. Professor Bill Lucas, from the University of Winchester, will give a keynote address and facilitate the first session. This will be an interactive workshop so come prepared to get involved.

This workshop is limited to 100 people. If you do successfully register but then can't attend please let us know. We will have a waiting list.

This session starts at 9.00am at the Windsor Hotel, with registrations from 8.30am.
