Program Description

First Year Teachers* (having started DECYP employment after February 7, 2023) are required to attend a 4-day specialised program prior to the commencement of Term 1 2024.

This four-day specialised learning and induction program will be held regionally between January 30 and February 2, 2024. Three days will be held at venues across the state, and the final day on site in your contracted school.
