Training

The Kindergarten IT Program offers training that is focused on ICT needs of community kindergartens as well as on-boarding for some of the Early Learning platforms provided by the Victorian Department of Education and Training.

Training webinars are now available

The Online Transition Learning and Development Statement (Online TLDS) tool reopened on Monday July 12th 2021. To assist early childhood educators we have updated our Online TLDS demonstration video and are offering webinars of our course Online TLDS Training – 901.

The webinars will run from late July through August and September. The sessions deliver a basic introduction for new users. If you have used the Online TLDS in previous years, or if you are confident with online platforms, a review of our 15min demonstration video should suffice.
