Yes! APTUTORING Provides Professional Development

Looking to expand your professional development repertoire? Did you know APTUTORING provides accredited professional development for teachers in accordance with the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT)?

The VIT states that “as a registered teacher or early childhood teacher you will need to engage in at least 20 hours of professional development (PD) activities, each year to renew your registration… (and) your PD must be referenced to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) and address at least one standard in each of the three domains of the APST: Professional Knowledge, Professional Practice and Professional Engagement.

This year APTUTORING has offered professional development for teachers in the areas of conducting educational assessments, delivering scholarship preparation, induction for new staff and teaching for special needs.

Did you know that as part of the government’s Special Needs Plan it is now a mandatory requirement (for VIT renewal) for all teachers to complete professional development to enable them to build their skills for working with learners with disabilities.

We now offer professional development ‘Teaching for Special Needs’ that complies with the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers 1.5, 1.6 & 4.1. It is based on educational research & draws on the experience of our Educational Assessors to focus on how to meet students individual needs in both classroom & tuition settings. It covers:

  • Types of special needs disabilities & disorders
