Actions/Critical date

Learn Local trainers be quick and take up the professional development opportunity on Taking a Project-based approach to foundation skills development by emailing nadia.casarotto@vu.edu.au

'Taking a project-based approach to foundation skills development' provides an opportunity for pre-accredited trainers to learn about and apply an active learner mode of delivery to Literacy and Numeracy Education skills development that is most suited to adults. Pre-accredited trainers involved in a previous professional development program on this topic were surprised as to how well it worked for their adult learners.

The new improved program run by Victoria University, Curriculum Maintenance Management involves five interrelated workshops all to be attended for you to achieve the best result. The first workshop is on 3 November. The others are on 2 December 2021, 24 March 2022, 31 March 2022, and 7 April 2022.
