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

You will hear from a current VAPA Assessor to better understand their role and approach to assessment, and a former participant about the benefits of undertaking the VAPA.

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.
