The VDC is pleased to announce that registrations are now open for the Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) funded Victorian VET Teacher Professional Learning Program and Learn Local Professional Learning Program for 2020.
The learning outcomes of all sessions are now aligned to Teaching, Assessment, Systems and Compliance, and Industry, Community and Collaboration domains and related capabilities as prescribed in the VET Practitioner Capability Framework (IBSA 2011).
Commencing from 13 July 2020 these programs have been adapted in response to COVID-19 to be delivered online.
VDC VET Chat with Industry Experts
Following the success of the first VDC VET Chat Series, VDC has engaged a new range of experts to facilitate a weekly 30-minute VET Chat where you can take your questions straight to the subject matter experts. The VET Chats create an online platform to collaborate, inspire thinking and share ideas and resources. This series can support you to critically analyse and rethink the way you teach, deliver your courses, adjust your TAS, engage with industry and harvest the potential of using technology in a virtual classroom.
Bring your tea/coffee at 10.00am to each Wednesday throughout June to participate in an engaging, thought provoking and interactive session.
Upcoming sessions are:
Adjusting your TAS to adapt to COVID 19 restrictions
Wednesday 3rd June | Kevin Ekendahl
Adult Learning Principles, revisited
Wednesday 10th June | Chemène Sinson
How to maximise the benefits of industry engagement
Wednesday 17 June | Kerri Buttery

In the last issue of VDC News, we highlighted the long-awaited survey of the VET teaching workforce.
This time, Erica Smith takes a look at it from other perspectives: career development, working conditions, qualifications and professional development.
A while ago a discussion paper was released to help shape the new National Skills Commission.
Consultation is over and the bill to establish it is going through parliament as we write. What is the Commission going to look like?
