The Statewide Resources Centre (SRC) is a Department of Education funded building, housing 10+ education associations. As an incubator for education the SRC has a unique educational community. CPTAV manages the operational running of the SRC and its meeting room spaces. We provide a number of meeting rooms for the use of member associations and residents.
If you're not aware, we have fashioned half of the ORI Computer Room (Room 11) into a makeshift meeting room.
This is temporarily the new Meeting Room C.
The old Room C, that we all know & love, is in the process of being refitted as a new office space to house The Association of French Teachers in Victoria (AFTV), Victorian Association for TESOL and Multicultural Education (VicTESOL), Victorian Association of Traffic Safety Education Teachers (VATSET) and Victorian Associations for Philosophy in Schools (VAPS).
The Council of Professional Teaching Associations of Victoria is the peak organisation representing professional teaching associations in Victoria. Its thirty five member associations are composed of subject specific, discipline based and cross-curricular organisations which represent teachers across all sectors. The CPTAV mission is "Building professional learning communities” and its main objective is to assist all members to enhance their capacity for delivering quality professional learning and, by implication, enabling teachers to improve student learning. CPTAV acts as a conduit, facilitating access to professional teaching associations.
The CPTAV awards were held on the 10 December 2013 at Graduate House, Melbourne University. Each year Professional Teaching Associations have the chance to celebrate the exceptional contributions their Board members or a member of the association make to their community. This year saw 14 Associations having an outstanding indivudual recognised. The CPTAV Committee of Management could not distinguish between the nominations and decided it was only appropriate that each nomination was deserving of recieving the Outstanding Professional Services Award.
The new rules for the CPTAV have been accepted by Consumer Affairs Victoria. Like most Associations we have been through a rewirte of the Constitution as the New Model Rules have been implemented. The key areas in which CPTAV has changed is the purpose of the Association. We advise all members to read through these pruposes as they will be informing the future directions of CPTAV as an Association. CPTAV hopes that all members have updated their Constitution to the New Model Rules and advises them to contact the office team if they require any assistance or resources.
