A VALBEC (Victorian Adult Literacy and Basic Education Council) Professional Learning session presented by Liam Frost-Camilleri.

Motivating and engaging students in a vocational setting is a complex task and in this professional learning session, Liam Frost-Camilleri will examine the role of GRIT in the vocational classroom.

The focus of this presentation will be on the pivotal role this psychological theory plays in cultivating passion, determination, engagement and motivation within the classroom. By fostering a resilient mindset and encouraging students to persevere through challenges, GRIT becomes a powerful tool in shaping student success and personal growth.

Liam will discuss how GRIT serves as a catalyst for career adaptability, equipping students with the resilience needed to navigate the ever-changing landscape of employment. This presentation will explore how the cultivation of GRIT nurtures autonomy, empowering students to take ownership of their learning experiences.

Liam is an early career researcher in the education space. He is an academic at Federation University Australia, lecturing in the Master of Teaching and enabling programs and is the current President at VALBEC.

Liam completed his Masters in 2018 on VCAL teachers and how they navigate the core skills and compliance space, which led him to his current doctoral study topic; reengagement of early school leavers in second chance education institutions.

A passionate educator, Liam has spent his career working in secondary schools (public and private) teaching at Primary level as well as alternative education settings, in Vocational Education and more recently in Higher Education.

We look forward to seeing you there.
