2021 VCE Briefings: On-demand videos and live webinars
Principals/Directors and VCE Coordinators
The VCAA is offering an online professional development program for members of VCE leadership teams during Term 1, 2021.
The purpose of this professional development program is to provide VCE school leaders, particularly new VCE coordinators, with an overview of current VCE matters and the opportunity to increase knowledge and skills that can be shared with their VCE teaching teams.
For 2021 the structure of this professional learning program will be a series of on-demand videos for VCE school leaders covering information, skills and resources for leading the VCE in their schools. There will also be further live webinars in Term 1 and, as required, throughout the year.
These on-demand videos and the initial live webinar dates will be published in the Notices to Schools and the VCAA Bulletin in early February 2021.
The VCAA invites VCE school leaders to provide feedback on areas they wish to be covered as part of the ‘on-demand’ video series and supporting live webinars to help us develop a program that most effectively supports schools. To provide feedback, complete this short questionnaire by Friday 4 December 2020.
VCE school leaders are also encouraged to enrol in the online VCAA Senior Secondary Forum, if they haven’t already. The purpose of this forum is to create an online space where VCE leaders can share ideas and resources, ask questions, connect with other VCE leaders, and seek help where needed in a collaborative and supportive way. For more information refer to the user acceptance form and Forum Community Guidelines that are available to download from VASS.
Principals/Directors should ensure VCE school leaders, including VCE coordinators, are aware of this information and provide feedback via the short questionnaire to inform the program development.
