VIT Special Needs Professional Development – we can help you!

As part of the Victorian Government’s Special needs Plan teachers are now required to build their capacity to teach learners with a Disability. This capacity building will form part of the 20 hours of Professional Development teachers are required to undertake to meet the annual renewal requirements for the Victorian Institute of Teaching. Teachers must be able to identify the new learning they have gained from the PD & have evidence of attendance or engagement.
Throughout the year we will be arranging specific PD that will assist teachers to complete their 20 hours of PD
