Effective performance and development in schools supports the ongoing development of teachers and principals to ensure that students experience high quality teaching and learning in every classroom.
The Department of Education and Training’s Performance and Development model promotes and supports high levels of professionalism and excellence in schools and allow teachers, principals, school staff, parents and students to work together to make sure Victoria’s education system is one of the best in the world.
Performance and development is not new to Victorian schools – and this model provides a clear and effective way to recognise teachers who a positive difference to the learning, growth and development of students and contribute to vibrant communities. Most successful organisations have strong performance and development models, and Victorian government schools are no different.
The Performance and Development EduGate site contains all guidelines, templates tools and resources to support teachers, principal class employees and support staff to participate in Performance and Development. See:
