AVID Australia uses an evidence-based, high-engagement teaching and learning framework to support underachieving students to reach their potential.

School leaders interested in finding out more about the AVID program are invited to join us at our Summer Institute Opening and network with current AVID teachers and principals over morning tea.  Leaders will also have the opportunity to engage directly with AVID strategies to see them in action.

Summer Institute is our premier, national professional learning event that brings local and international expertise together in Melbourne, each year. Our AVID leaders and teachers are able to learn and practise evidence-based and high-engagement AVID teaching strategies in a three-day intensive immersion model – where the teacher learns by becoming the student.
