Principal Colin Schot holds VU’s education programs in high regard because they prepare graduates with a good grounding in teaching and learning to find success as educators.
We look for two key work competencies in a graduate – flexibility and the ability to connect with students and staff. I value graduates who are able to learn, take on responsibility and show initiative, and VU graduates never fail to demonstrate this.
VU provides practicum opportunities through their education programs for pre-service teachers to display these key competencies. These placements are vital as the school is able to gain an intimate knowledge of the skills and the competencies of the student in light of possible future employment opportunities.
VU graduates have always been able to successfully adapt to the learning and culture of the school, which is important."
