Notice 61 2021

Notice to Schools 61/2021 – 6 May 2021

Professional development: newly appointed VASS users

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

In May, June and July, we are offering training for VASS administrators who are new to their position or who have never used VASS. This training is also useful for schools offering a VCE, VET or VCAL program for the first time in 2021.

The remote training will be self-paced over one week with participants following video-guided exercises related to the most common VASS activities.

Each participant will receive:

  • a VASS New User’s Manual
  • access to a video walkthrough of 48 VASS new-user exercises
  • access to a VASS training environment for one week to complete exercises
  • an invite to a one-hour Q&A session with our VASS Support team members.

We strongly recommend that current VASS administrators mentor new administrators as part of their induction and handover in this very important role.

Full details and registration information is available on the VASS professional learning webpage.

Action required

Principals/directors, please advise new VASS administrators about this training.
