Professional development for newly appointed VASS users

Principals/Directors, VASS administrators, VCE coordinators and VCAL coordinators

The VCAA will conduct professional development training at metropolitan DET CASES Training Centres in November and December 2019 for newly appointed VASS users.

This training is designed for VASS administrators who are new to their position or who have never used VASS. It is recommended for schools offering a VCE, VET or VCAL program for the first time in 2020.

Other VASS training sessions will be scheduled in February and March 2020. Details will be provided in December and early next year.

It is strongly recommended that current VASS administrators mentor new administrators as part of their induction and handover for this very important role.
