VATE Consultancy Services

VATE endeavours to provide access to high-quality workshops, seminars and planning sessions for all teachers of English in Victoria. Due to budget, geographical location or scheduling, some schools find it difficult to send multiple staff members to VATE events.

VATE consultancy matches the expertise of its network of experienced teachers, assessors and academics to schools’ specific professional learning needs, bringing the professional learning to you without the complications and costs of travel or sourcing relief teachers. You can select from the options provided, or design your own custom professional learning session.
