  1. About G-TEN Semester 1, 2012 G-TEN, the Grampians Region Teacher Education Network, is a membership organisation offering a wide range of high quality professional learning designed to meet the needs of its members. What’s new for G-TEN in 2012? We have a number of new categories: Leadership Development – this year Leadership Development professional learning opportunities are  being offered through  G-TEN, and can be viewed in a NEW Leadership Development category. Many of the programs will be decided by a working party of current school teachers and leaders who meet regularly. This group formerly developed and promoted programs for the Assistant Principals and Aspiring Leaders’ group. Graduate and Returning Teachers - A range of programs specifically designed for graduate and returning teachers can be viewed through the category on the left of the screen. Personal Development – This category will include all sessions to do with your development – eg: First Aid, G-TEN Design Space on Ultranet: This year all resources for professional learning programs will be accessed by DEECD employees though our new Design Space on the Ultranet. (Search for number 52280047). Have a browse around the site for information and G-TEN news. In designing the suite of programs offered, ideas are gained from G-TEN participant responses and also from the Networks in the Grampians Region to ensure the identified professional learning needs are addressed.
