Field Officers

Sharing Wisdom and Expertise

The provision of Field Services is an important element of the services and support offered only to FULL members of the Victorian Association of State secondary principals.

Our Field Officers provide confidential advice and support to VASSP members who are employed as a principal/acting principal, or assistant principal/acting assistant principal.
