VATE Ideas Lab: Teaching English in the Middle Years Conference

The middle years provides the perfect environment for experimentation and innovation. Our students are curious and ready to be engaged with meaningful, purposeful and equitable learning opportunities.

With a focus on inclusivity, diversity and visibility, join with your colleagues to hear from a range of educators who will share their ideas and insights into teaching English in the middle years, highlighting ways that they capitalise on the enthusiasm and flexibility of students in Years 7 to 10.

Online Student Revision Lectures


VATE has developed a suite of online lectures to help students revise for the VCE English, EAL, English Language and Literature exams. These online recordings offer students the opportunity to hear and learn from experienced VCE teachers and examiners who provide insights into key aspects of the exams for each of the VCE English Studies. These online lectures can be accessed on any computer and mobile device providing useful extra revision for students. Access to these lectures is unlimited and available until the commencement of exams for each VCE English study.

For more information please view the Online Student Revision Lectures page.
