Supporting teachers as lifelong learners Teachers, like their students, are expected to be lifelong learners. For teachers, this means their training and professional education doesn’t end when they gain their qualifications and start work in a school. They have to do more. Throughout their careers, they are obliged to engage in continuing professional learning that they have to document and apply. This requirement recognises that teaching, like learning, is a dynamic process, where content, curriculum and methods can change and new ideas can emerge to meet the changing needs and expectations of students and society. Supporting this professional learning is an essential part of the way Independent Schools Victoria (ISV) supports staff in our Member Schools. Central to this work have been the courses, seminars and other events delivered through ISV’s Development Centre. Over the years, the range of what The Development Centre offers has grown to assist school communities as they confront new challenges.
