Join a current workshop listed below


The VPA provides a range of professional development programs for principals, assistant principals and aspiring school leaders each term. Programs are designed to meet the needs of members, and are run by the Association.





Managing the Unmanagable

Dates: Gippsland - Monday 26th & Tuesday 27th June

Melbourne - Thursday 19th & Friday 20th October

Cost: Members $1,100, Non-Members $1,250


Leading people can be a tough gig. You are expected to manage your own workload, emotions and
issues; support those with possible mental health concerns; implement change initiatives; and deal with
underperformance in a complex and constantly changing legal environment… all whilst maintaining
morale and productivity.

Returning again in 2017, this popular two day program will give you the skills to understand and
manage these issues pro-actively and confidently.




School Governance

Date: Friday 23rd June 9.00am - 1.00pm

Cost: All attendees $25

Venue: VPA Office, North Melbourne


VPA and VASSP along with Sharon Butler from Silent Partners, offer this workshop to leaders who wish to develop their understanding and skills in the role as Executive Officer of School Council. You will learn to respond strategically to changing demands and challenges, and gain skills in handling both the technical and relationship management aspects of the role.
