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 are now closed.
