The Victorian Teaching and Learning Model (VTLM) comprises 4 interrelated components through which excellence in teaching practice is articulated:

  • an overarching Vision for Learning which clearly states our moral purpose in education,
  • the Practice Principles, for excellence in teaching and learning,
  • the Pedagogical Model which describes what effective teaching looks like in the classroom and helps teachers enact the principles and strategies known to be most effective, and
  • the High Impact Teaching Strategies that outline 10 instructional practices that reliably increase student learning.
