The Ballarat Tech School is extremely excited to launch our 2023 Program Guide and alongside it, invite you to attend our
2023 Programs Professional Learning Event.

While many of you have experienced some of our programs firsthand, our teacher professional learning sessions will provide an opportunity to see other programs you may not be familiar with, or to bring along your less “Tech School experienced” colleagues to explore the spaces, technologies and pedagogies that underly student learning in our programs.

To ensure that all teachers have the opportunity to attend sessions, regardless of your teaching load and commitments, we have set aside four days and three afternoons so you can book a time convenient for you.

The bookable timeslots are for specific times between 10am – 3pm for individuals, learning areas or larger staff groups from the same school to attend.

The focus sessions between 4pm – 5:30pm include afternoon tea and refreshments, are unlimited in number and will concentrate on the different focus area listed for each day. To see the programs on offer for exploration in those focus sessions, please refer to the table on the next page. Some programs will appear in multiple sessions and the discussion will be tailored accordingly (eg either for VCE / VET or for years 8-10).

To book any of the sessions and assist with catering, please register through Eventbrite.

For any questions, please contact us on 5327 8080 or ballarattechschool@federation.edu.au
