VAPS VCE 2025 Study Design Resourcing Team

VAPS will help prepare VCE Philosophy teachers for the changes coming to the study design in 2025. VAPS will have a team focussed on removing, modifying, and adding VCE Philosophy resrouces from the members section of our website to ensure our work is current with the new study design once it's released. 

We seek expressions of interest from people who are interested in joining this team.

Please fill out this form if you are interested. 

VCE Resources - Contemporary Articles

We have started to curate a document with recent texts that are relevant to VCE. You can access and contribute to the document from the members section of our website (login required).


VCE Set Text Audiobooks

VAPS has recently published audiobooks available for free via Spotify for the current VCE Philosophy Set Texts. These are particuarly useful to have the texts all in one place, and also for texts that jump around and skip sections of the original (e.g., Descartes). These audiobooks will allow you to listen to only those sections that form part of the set text.


Please see our website and events calendar page of this newsletter for full details about venues, times, and registrations for all events.
