2022 VATE State Conference

Registrations are now open for the 2022 VATE State Conference at Deakin University, Burwood on Thursday, November 24 and Friday, November 25.

You can find more information including the Conference blurb and program at the 2022 VATE State Conference page.

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.

2022 Membership now available

Due to an issue with the usual renewal portal, Individual members can renew their membership by logging out of their account and using this portal instead.

We'd like to thank the strong and vibrant VATE community that continued to support our English teaching colleagues across the state in 2021. You can now renew your VATE Membership for 2022 through the 'My account' area of your account or if you aren't a current VATE member, you can join here!

Beyond TEEL returns

VATE’s popular Beyond TEEL online learning modules are again available for purchase with two additional modules. The aim of these modules is to help teachers in Years 7 – 12 develop student readers and writers.

Over 50 years of supporting English teachers

VATE is an independent, not for profit organisation that aims to foster the highest quality teaching of English throughout Victoria. Since 1960 VATE has supported its members as they have navigated the various changes to the teaching and learning of English over the last sixty years.
