Professional development

We run a range of scheduled and on-demand professional development programs for teachers, librarians, literacy professionals and others.

All professional development events must be pre-booked and scheduled events are listed in our What’s on calendar.

All of our professional development programs are accredited with the VIT and are designed in accordance with the DEECD's principles of highly effective professional learning. Supporting documentation and evidence of completion is provided at the conclusion of each program. We partner with Public Libraries Victoria Network to deliver professional development activities for public library staff, including seminars, leadership programs and scholarships.

We also produce a range of teaching resources for educators, along with a number of remote access resources that can be used for professional reading.
