Description                                       

VIT runs a number of mentoring programs across educational sectors. In 2020, VIT are working closely with Independent Schools Victoria to provide additional opportunities for teachers to undertake mentor training to support staff within their workplace.

The ISV/VIT Mentoring workshops are two full days which will cover the role of the mentor in the induction process and explore the requirements for applications by provisionally registered teachers for (full) registration. Mentors will work together to explore the requirements of the inquiry and make links to their role in the application process.

Teacher induction into the workplace is a vital part of supporting and retaining teachers in our schools. As part of the VIT process for teachers who are moving from provisional to (full) registration, an experienced mentor with strong skills and knowledge of the process is vital to their success.
