Resources for VALA members
VALA has created a one stop collection of excellent resources for teachers.
There’s books, articles, PowerPoints, resource links, handouts, units and e-learning tools – all designed to support learning and teaching in applied learning programs. They have been selected based on their usefulness, their quality and their connection to VCAL or other applied learning programs.
Most of the resources included here are freely available as downloads. Items for sale are clearly identified.
Members need current login details to access this section of the website. These would have been provided when you joined or renewed and they change each year.
Can you ever have too many resources?
Many organisations offer useful resources – you can start with a Google search.
VCAA (Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority) have exemplars and useful examples.
Skillswise on the BBC has English and maths for adults – yes that’s The BBC – UK TV, etc. – with skills, games and quizzes.
Building Strength with Numeracy – free numeracy resources from VALBEC (Victorian Adult Literacy and Basic Education Council).
