VCSSDPA Professional Learning

Goals 

The constitution of the VCSSDPA states one of its aims as “to foster professional, personal and spiritual development and welfare of its participants”. Membership of the association assists the executive and other committees in ensuring this aim is met, particularly through the professional learning program and related activities.

The goals of the Professional Learning Program are to: 

  • Provide opportunities for formation as leaders in a Catholic faith community. 
  • Provide opportunities to develop shared professional conversations and develop collegial networks. 
  • Welcome new deputies to the association and support them in the transition to the role. 
  • Provide targeted professional learning opportunities in the contemporary educational paradigm.

Membership also ensures that Deputy Principals (or their equivalents) have ready access to information about association activities and an opportunity to assist in their development.
