    In the spirit of sharing, learning and growing, VINE is happy to announce a partnership with Prodigy learning and Microsoft which will see discounted training available to members schools.

    This offer enables school’s technical staff to undertake self-paced learning and optionally certify in any of the technical streams offered by Prodigy Learning at a vastly reduced cost. Certification enables your technical team to demonstrate their technical know-how and that they are committed to continuing their professional learning to remain current in a world that is always changing.

    The second component of this offer is to boost the skills of school’s teaching and professional staff. VINE encourages teaching and professional staff to close out the training cycle by attempting the optional certification exams. The purpose of this offer is to boost core IT skills of our member schools’ teaching and professional staff to make the most of the tools at their disposal.

    VINE Member Rebate Bonus 

    In addition to discounted pricing, VINE member schools can claim a $50 rebate for each of the first 10 courses and exams that they purchase for their school each annual membership cycle, The maximum rebate is capped at $500 per school. To collect your rebate, your school will be required to submit a tax invoice to VINE. 

    The rebate is not available to VINE Individual Members or VINE Digital Members however the VINE Offer Code may be used to access the discounted pricing.

    Another amazing year of growth and connection despite the challenging and sometimes rocky return schools have had to face-to-face learning. The situation we find ourselves in continues to underscore the need for schools to connect regularly and this happens best with the support of sponsors. Sponsors not only help fund our work and provide venues where we can meet, but also add a different and valued perspective to the dialogue which helps the industry mature in a positive and productive way.

    45 companies applied for the eight annual sponsorship spots offered for the 2022-2023 financial year and of those accepted, six of the eight were returning sponsors. I mention this as these companies (Microsoft, CompNow, Centorrino Technologies, Somerville, Sentral and Pixevety) demonstrate an ongoing commitment to the work VINE does and this is highly valued by member schools.

    I would also like to highlight two new sponsors: Lenovo (VINE Partner) and EdSmart (VINE Partner). Both companies are well known in Victoria and have contributed to the growth and success of VINE over time – it is fantastic to have them as annual sponsors for 2022-2023.

    VINE is a professional association committed to nurturing the effective and innovative use of ICT in all areas of K-12 schools. Our tagline: "share, learn & grow" sums up our reason for being and our sponsors help ensure we continue to thrive.

    We are pleased to let you know the line up for our first meeting is looking amazing, thanks to the great work of Ashley Voigt.

    The meeting theme is 'Time to talk tech' and will provide a great line up of presenters as well as lots of opportunity to learn from other schools.  After last year's survey we understand it is hard to release technical people during the school term, so the Friday 22 April is in the school break.

    Venue and final agenda will be made available soon.  For now put the date in your calendar.

    Microsoft Education Australia has announced the 2022 Microsoft School Transformation Program. It is a range of free professional development workshops for teachers, leaders, and IT pros that runs in the latter half of each year. In the first half of the year, we run a range of teacher workshops that will allow your staff to learn about Microsoft technologies in education to empower themselves and their students. By upskilling your staff early in the year, you will be set to complete the School Transformation Program later in the year if you choose to. 

    Schools can use the calendar of events listed to build a professional learning program for their teachers around using Microsoft Technologies. Individual teachers can use the calendar of events to build their personal professional learning program. Whether these workshops are pursued as a school or as an individual, teachers can build capacity and understanding in using Windows, Teams, 365 tools, STEM and Inclusive Classroom tools.
