During April, GOTAFE teaching staff had the opportunity to attend one of 10 on campus professional development workshops. The workshops were an initiative of the team responsible for the Educators Passport.

Interim Executive Director of Education Louise Pearce said: “The aim of the professional development workshops was to assist teachers to continue to develop their VET knowledge and skills to meet the unique features of VET education and its students.

“The workshops were held on campus during the school holidays to give staff the best opportunity to attend, 198 registrations were received for the three days which is a wonderful result.

“We had three fantastic facilitators Andrew Douch, Karen Dymke and Shauna Farey all with educational backgrounds, who ran the workshops at Shepparton, Wangaratta and Benalla campuses.

“The workshop topics ranged from Determining competency of students to Using Apps to facilitate learning and Creating a dyslexia friendly classroom.

“We are thrilled with the success of the workshops, the fact that we offered them in convenient locations for staff and that each workshop provides credits to staff for their Educator Passport is contributing to the competency and development of teaching staff.”

Further workshops will be offered during May.
