Professional Learning Opportunities

WATSSA is dedicated to offering Professional Learning opportunities to its members and collaborating with the Department of Education, Non-Government Schools, industry providers, and IT professionals to organise regular workshops. These typically take place during school holiday periods throughout the year. Members are encouraged to participate in these sessions, which offer valuable insights and updates to enhance their understanding and knowledge, and to stay informed about the latest technological advancements.


WATSSA encourages members to share their feedback regarding preferred areas of professional development or specific providers they would like to engage with.


Our WATSSA Conferences offer tailored professional development for school-based technical support staff, school leaders and educators.  The events have an emphasis on the integration of technology into teaching and learning practices.  Conference attendees can look forward to networking opportunities, skill development sessions and insights into the latest technology trends. The conferences also provide a platform for attendees to explore innovative products, engage with sponsors and vendors and foster relationships with education professionals from both the public and private sector.


See our Upcoming Events page for infomation on our networking and other events.
