Date and time
Friday 4 September 2020, 9.00 am to 2.00 pm
Online – a Zoom link will be provided 24 hours prior to the event
This learning event is right for you if you are a beginning teacher, provisionally registered teacher or mentor support teacher.
This webinar is open to all beginning teachers and provisionally registered teachers. It is a great opportunity to work with VIT representatives and ISV fellows on moving toward full registration and the requirements for submitting your sample of evidence. This is also a great opportunity to network with other new teachers as well as gain valuable information to assist with teaching and learning. This is purposefully later in the year so that you are able to come with any questions, case studies and planning for the rest of the year. There will be a one hour lunch break.
