Programs and Partnerships

Creating opportunities and fostering connections.

ISV supports teachers and students through our forward-thinking professional learning programs and partnerships. Our research and understanding of modern learning helps us guide member schools towards new opportunities every day.

Through our programs, schools can collaborate with other educators across the Independent sector and develop deeper learning among their own staff. ISV partners with eminent organisations, such as Harvard University, to enrich the professional learning of member schools for the benefit of every student.

Teaching Excellence Program 2023

The Victorian Academy of Teaching and Leadership Teaching Excellence Program (TEP) is for highly skilled teachers from government, Catholic and Independent schools across Victoria.

Developed in collaboration with representatives from each sector, the program seeks to strengthen and extend evidence-based teacher practice across the state for teachers in all school settings.

Through the Teaching Excellence Program teachers will have an opportunity to deepen teaching excellence and advance their professional practice through disciplinary knowledge, the science of learning and contemporary pedagogies.

Applications for the next intake in 2023 have been extended until Tuesday 11 October.
