2022 VCE Englishes Days

The popular VCE Englishes Days will return onsite to Deakin University, Burwood in February 2022. These days offer new and exerienced teachers an opportunity to focus on each Area of Study, texts, skills, and provide an important space to learn and network.  

The VCE English Language and Literature day will be held on Thursday 17 February 2022.

The VCE English and EAL day will be held on Friday 18 February 2022.
