Virtual Languages Mentoring Network (VLMN) information session
The Languages and Culture team successfully established the Virtual Languages Mentoring Network (VLMN) in 2017 to support beginning and/or isolated language teachers 7-12. Early career and geographically remote teachers of languages often work as the only language teacher in the school and have specific needs which cannot always be met at the school level.
In the VLMN program, beginning and/or isolated language teachers, mentees, are matched with an experienced language teacher, mentor, for the duration of the program. The VLMN program begins with a centrally-located conference for both mentors and mentees. The Languages and Culture team provides release to facilitate mentoring support and attend targeted professional learning for the duration of the VLMN program.
Are you interested in joining the program as a mentor or mentee in 2021-2022? Do you think a teacher in your school would benefit from participating in the program? EOIs will advertised in SchoolBiz in Week 6.
An information session will be held on Thursday 26 November at 3:30pm for language teachers and school executive to find out more about the VLMN program. There will be time at the end to ask any questions you may have about the program.
Registration for the information session is via MyPL. The course identifier is NR28714.
