Introductory and Refresher TSGOLD

The Vermont Agency of Education is sponsoring accredited trainers to conduct Teaching Strategies Gold (TSG) trainings throughout the year and across the state. TSG trainings are free and open to all early educators supporting children 0-5 in Vermont. TSG Introductory training is the first set of trainings. Participants are expected to attend the full 12 hours.

Introductory trainings are appropriate for new Teaching Strategies GOLD users.  Discover how to make the most of MyTeachingStrategies™ as you explore the Teach, Assess, Develop, Report, and Family areas. Learn to address the objectives for development and learning, conduct objective observations of children, determine what children know and can do, and use assessment information to plan developmentally appropriate experiences. Participants are expected to attend both days of the training from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Refresher trainings are appropriate for veteran users of Teaching Strategies GOLD in need of guidance. In this class, you will navigate what is new, what is similar, and what has changed with the MyTeachingStrategies™ platform. Bring your questions on documentation, checkpoints, reports, and/or on any other GOLD area. Participants are expected to attend the one-day training from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Please note: The minimum number of participants for trainings is 15 and the maximum is 20. Please contact Shirley Rawson at if you have any questions.
