Congratulations on gaining your teaching qualification and entering the world of education. It is a new and exciting path – and the VCAA has a range of resources to assist you on your teaching journey.
About the VCAA
The VCAA is a statutory body responsible to the Victorian Minister for Education. We serve both government and non-government schools. The VCAA’s mission is to provide high quality curriculum, assessment and reporting to enable learning for life.
We aim to support teachers by providing resources and tools to assist you in the classroom. There are plenty offered on our website – including the VCE and VCAL Administrative Handbook and past exam papers and assessment reports.
The VCAA’s free Early Years Alert provides updates about activities and professional learning resources to support implementation of the revised Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF). The VEYLDF is a teaching framework for 0-8 years so it is important specifically for primary teachers working with students in Prep – Year 2.
The VCAA also provides reminders about important administrative dates for the school year, including release of VCE results and deadlines for enrolment submissions.
We reach out to Victorian educators through regular news channels. Subscribe to our monthly VCAA ‘Bulletin’ for curriculum updates, latest news and events, plus professional development opportunities.
You can also keep up-to-date on VCAA activities by receiving our weekly Notices to Schools. A notice to schools is an official communication to Victorian Schools issued by VCAA.
Stay notified of VCAA news and events, such as the VCE Season of Excellence, by following our Twitter account.
The VCAA will support you at the start of your career and throughout it. We look forward to sharing the journey with you.
