Professional Development

Plan your 2017 professional learning!

Our Semester 2, 2017 Professional Learning Calendar has been released and sessions are now available to book online.

An exciting new addition to this year’s calendar is our six-part Leadership Series, that aims to support those in a range of leadership roles with diverse levels of experience. Sessions can be attended individually if you just want to focus on one area of leadership, or you can book into the full 6 sessions for the cost of 5.


Overview

Gowrie Victoria plans and delivers  professional development to meet your needs based on extensive needs analysis, including feedback from early childhood education and care services. We often schedule additional professional development throughout the semester, to meet sector need, so you will always find the most up-to-date information online.

Customised Professional Development

We can tailor our learning options to meet the unique needs of your service. Professional Learning can be delivered at your service, a local venue or at one of our Gowrie Victoria locations.  Visit our Customised Professional Development page to find out more.

Online Webinars

Gowrie Victoria also delivers Professional Learning through online Webinars. Webinars are a 1 -2 hour snapshot of key learnings and offer convenience and flexibility for educators who can go online at their own service.  Sessions delivered in this manner are clearly marked ‘Webinar’ in our Professional Learning Calendar  and our Online Booking System.
