PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR TUTORS
This is the first of what will be regular updates from Riverina Community College for our tutors. It is our intent to update you on events, opportunities and openings for tutors (whether you offer accredited or unaccredited training) and, in particular, to alert you to professional development days or events that we will be offering. These are free events and open to anyone who is already teaching with us as well as anyone wishing to do so.
As you are probably aware, anyone with the TAA qualification has until June this year to upgrade to the new TAE qualification. There is a rush to upgrade in time and we would encourage anyone who still hasn’t rolled their old qualification over to the new one to contact us. We are offering free training to upgrade to anyone who regularly tutors with us.
Contact Jeff Gunns for more information on 69335514 or email Jeff on
These events are mandatory for anyone who tutors accredited courses with us regularly. If you have not already been contacted about this then please get in touch with our VET department as soon as possible.
We will try our best to offer choices in terms of days and times but continuous improvement and ongoing professional development is very much required by our regulatory body (ASQA) and is going to be a regular feature element in these newsletters.
Our next professional development days are:
Wednesday 17th April, from 3.00 PM to 9.00 PM OR
Friday 19th April from 9.00 AM to 3.00 PM
The sessions will focus on compliance, assessment, assessment validation and training plans (for tutoring of VET courses). Please email Tony McBride and advise which session you will be attending on
