Professional Learning 2018 (NSW)

AVID Australia sites are required to complete two days of Professional Learning to maintain their contractual obligations as a licensed AVID site.  We have once again expanded the range of Professional Learning modules for 2018 [see list of available modules] to 33, including six new modules. Professional Learning days and the modules can be customised to meet your school’s professional learning needs and we can also use this time to observe classes with your AVID leadership team. Your team may choose a combination of workshops and observations.

If there are additional ways you would like to use these two days to help sustain and develop your AVID implementation or attract new potential AVID sites in your area,  please let us know.

Observation and Coaching

All schools have the option of arranging an Observation and Coaching Day as one of their Professional Learning days. If this is your second year of implementation, it is a compulsory requirement to have an Observation and Coaching Day during the year. The Observation and Coaching Day allows you to benchmark your school’s AVID implementation against expected milestones and get feedback on your progress towards certification and beyond.

A coaching and observation day typically also includes a meeting with the site and leadership team. This is a further opportunity to discuss your progress as a team and to provide AVID Australia with feedback on your school’s Professional Learning and AVID support requirements.

 

FAQs

  • While visiting your school, we are also happy to meet with other schools or colleagues who are interested in joining the AVID program in your region. In return, any existing AVID schools that bring new schools to AVID will receive two free registrations to Summer Institute per new site.
  • Schools are welcome to combine their Professional Learning days. If a group of schools are interested in combining Professional Learning days, please contact AVID Australia to discuss how the days will be structured and how the allocation of Professional Learning days for each site will be distributed.
  • If your site is a multi-campus school with one site license, two Professional Learning days are allocated across all campuses. From 2018, multi-campus sites can purchase additional Professional Learning days (please contact us for further information).
