How you can help ...
1. Complete the survey
VET and Technologies teachers who have previously completed the Bachelor of Technology Education (or former Graduate Diploma of Technology Education) at La Trobe University will soon be invited to participate in a survey - The results of which will help the campaign to argue for the need to reintroduce undergraduate VET & Technologies Initial Teacher Education (ITE) courses in Victoria. PSTs in the current teach-out version of the course will also be invited to take part. If you are a past student (or current PST) of the program and would like to help out, please email Karen at so we can send you a link to the survey. Thank you!
2. Write to MPs
You can help by writing to relevant ministers to request undergraduate ITE courses for VET and Technologies Teachers in Victoria. You can email Ministers directly, call them, or even post a snail mail letter.
