The Vietnamese Teachers' Association of Victoria PDF Print E-mail

The Vietnamese Teachers’ Association of Victoria Inc. (VTAV) is an incorporated non-profit association.

The Committee

The Committee is elected at the Annual General Meeting known as Professional Development seminar every two years.

Operation of the VTAV

The VTAV is a professional subject association founded in 2008 and has been incorporated since 2010.

The association is led by an elected Committee and our Vietnamese teachers throughout Victoria. We volunteer our time and expertise to support the teaching and learning of Vietnamese. We meet and review our operations regularly to respond to changing circumstances and priorities.

The VTAV does not have an office. We collaborate online and through meetings and conferences, mostly out of school hours.

The Committee is responsible for all operations of the VTAV. This includes facilitating teacher professional development and the end of the year function for teachers.

In 2013, the VTAV will review its constitution to comply with new legislation and to reflect current circumstances.

Key Areas of Support

We provide professional development seminars for teachers to develop collaborative professional networks, to share ideas and resources and to improve the learning outcomes for Vietnamese students.

We coordinate professional development (PD), maintain websites and develop course outlines and resources.


The VTAV uses websites to communicate with the general public and our members. The VTAV website is monitored and managed by members of the Committee.

Appreciation and Thanks

The VTAV appreciates the hours of volunteer support from its Committee and Network Leaders, both past and present, without which many of the opportunities for students and teachers of Vietnamese would not be possible.

The Committee and school Leaders appreciate the support for our professional association by our members.

The VTAV is grateful to successive Victorian governments for offering grants to the VTAV to support the teaching and learning of Vietnamese in Victoria.

We value the work of the Vietnamese teachers and schools in promoting the language and culture of Vietnamese and Vietnamese-speaking communities and the significant contribution to maintaining a high profile for Vietnamese in Australia.
