This session will provide information about the Victorian Aspiring Principal Assessment (VAPA) process, and how it assesses readiness for principalship. 

You will leave with a clearer understanding of how the VAPA supports your professional development through formative and actionable feedback designed to enhance your professional capability.

Finally, you will gain a clearer understanding of the staged implementation of the VAPA as a requirement for first-time principals.   

There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session.


The VAPA is open to all school leaders and aspiring principals in government and non-government schools.

People from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. 

Note: substantive principals do not need to undertake the VAPA.
