About the project

The Victorian Academy of Teaching and Leadership is a statutory authority to deliver a new Australian-first program of advanced professional learning for high-performing teachers in government, Catholic and Independent schools.

The Victorian Academy of Teaching and Leadership is based in a purpose-designed CBD site at 41 St Andrews Place, East Melbourne, and the existing site in North Melbourne. Additional sites in 7 regional centres ensure rural and regional teachers and leaders are able to access high-quality professional learning regardless of their location.

The CBD site, as the Academy's home, has been upgraded and modernised. We transformed the Victorian Heritage Register-listed building into a state-of-the-art, contemporary adult learning and teaching facility. The Academy supports a blended model of on-site and online learning, enabling the state's most exceptional teachers and school leaders to enhance their professional practice and connect with each other. The Academy's CBD centre also provides presentation and function spaces to host conferences, visiting professors and academics.

The Academy’s regional centres will ensure that school leaders and our most exceptional teachers and school leaders from rural and regional areas can connect remotely with their statewide counterparts, beaming into other Academy centres and schools to share their expertise and undertake professional learning together.

The Academy has received $33.814 million to develop its CBD and 7 regional centres.
