Home schooling update—expressions of interest for assessors panel

The VRQA has released an expression of interest for its Home Schooling Assessors Panel.

From 1 January 2018, new requirements for home schooling commence as part of the implementation of the Education and Training Reform Regulations 2017, including:

  • a learning plan to be submitted with each new home schooling registration application
  • an annual review of around 10 per cent of families.

The VRQA is seeking to supplement its internal resources with a panel of assessors with experience in a range of education settings and in a variety of learning styles and approaches, including for children with special learning needs.

The panel will assist with the assessment of learning plans submitted as a requirement of initial registration and will also undertake assessment as part of the annual reviews.

The EOI is the first stage of a multi-stage procurement process so that the VRQA can gain a better understanding of the supplier market and range of solutions that may be available.

Detailed information on the EOI is available on the Tenders VIC website.
