Professional Learning for School Teachers

Tabled: 20 February 2019

Overview

Throughout their careers, teachers undertake various formal and informal learning activities to strengthen their practice, known as professional learning. It is important for education systems to invest in professional learning, as the quality of teachers has a significant influence on student outcomes.

In this audit, we examined whether the Department of Education and Training and the Victorian Institute of Teaching have a clear and accurate understanding of the professional learning that occurs in Victorian government schools, including its planning, cost, and impact, so they can best target and support professional learning to drive better student outcomes.
