Inspiring evidence-informed professional learning programs from the Victorian Academy of Teaching and Leadership (the Academy) are available to help teachers and school leaders enhance their capabilities.

The programs are aligned to the recently launched Academy Leadership Excellence Framework  (the framework). 

The framework supports the design and delivery of high-quality professional learning programs and offers teachers and school leaders an evidence-based resource to deepen their leadership knowledge. 

The framework sets out the practices, capabilities and dispositions for excellence at all levels of leadership. School leaders can visit the framework web page to discover a range of evidence-informed collaborative learning experiences they can work through with their team.

New Academy centre for Mallee educators

The Academy has officially opened its new centre in Mildura, helping local teachers boost their skills with world-class professional learning on their doorstep. 

The purpose-built centre is run by local staff and offers state-of-the-art facilities for teachers and school leaders to collaborate, exchange ideas and develop new ways of teaching. 

The Academy also has regional centres in Bairnsdale, Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong, Moe and Shepparton.

Teaching Excellence Program applications open

The Academy is now taking applications for the 2024 intake of the Teaching Excellence Program.

This is the only advanced professional learning program of its kind in Australia and is designed to advance the professional knowledge and practice of teachers from Victorian government, Catholic and Independent schools.  

Through the program, teachers advance their knowledge in their learning areas and improve their capability and confidence to teach more effectively.  

Teachers accepted into the program can access the latest evidence-informed research to apply in their classrooms. 

In a new video, Rachael Gore, from Albert Park College in Melbourne, explained the value of the program. Rachael said: ‘Victoria already has some phenomenal teachers. I think it is important that those teachers are acknowledged, but also that we have the capacity to grow from good to exemplary.’

Teachers who participated in 2023 are preparing to graduate on Friday 1 December 2023.
