Professional Development

ContinuedProfessional Learning

Continuing professional development is a fundamental part of maintaining organisational effectiveness and career relevance in Western Australian schools. With knowledge doubling every twelve months and increasing demands on teacher’s time it is becoming increasingly difficult to stay on top of professional learning obligations.
We support professional learning for teachers, VET Coordinators and school executives by providing a number of professional development workshops.

Workshop Delivery

We deliver highly facilitated and interactive workshops on a variety of VET specific topics as well as industry topics relevant to a school environment. Our workshops are delivered through webinars, online, face-to-face or a blended structure.

We have workshops scheduled at our training facility throughout the year on a variety of topics. See upcoming PD for more information on what’s on.

Workshop Customisation

We can design a professional development workshop that meets your schools’ needs. All our workshops can be tailored to suit your school environment or we can work with you to develop a bespoke workshop on a topic of your choosing.

Our team would be happy to assist so give us a call on 08 6143 2180 or Enquire.
