This learning event is right for you if you are a beginning teacher wanting to connect with other new teachers and to be supported as you start your career


This learning event is a great opportunity for beginning teachers to network with other new teachers as well as gain valuable information to assist their teaching and learning. Participants will hear from the Victorian Institute of Teaching on moving toward full registration and the code of conduct for teachers. There will also be information on classroom management, knowing how your students learn, working with students from different backgrounds, and teacher wellbeing.

Past Participant comments:

This ISV seminar was highly beneficial, particularly the opportunity to meet with other beginning teachers from different schools/colleges and discuss similar issues/concerns within our workplace.

It is great to see teachers from every part of Victoria come together, share their experiences, and swap contact details so that they can keep in touch.

Key takeaways                

Insight around questions such as:
  • what has been the most positive experience this year?
  • what is making your heart sing and how do you get more of that?
  • what have been some challenges and how might you overcome these?
