We develop review resources to help you show how you are meeting the requirements of registration. These resources are optional. If you choose to use them, you should not need to use them all. You can adapt these resources to suit your own home education style.
Our templates help you to reflect on your child's educational program in a way that addresses the requirements of registration.
These templates will help you produce a report. They prompt you to describe your child's educational program and record the frequency of delivery and the resources you are using. There are two ways you could approach a report:
Activity coversheet (example and template) (docx - 44.13kb)
Learning activities can cover multiple learning areas. This coversheet prompts you to show which learning areas an activity covers and helps you to describe the activity in context with your child's educational program. You may need to provide a few of these coversheets to demonstrate instruction across all learning areas.
Weekly record (example and template) (docx - 37.64kb)
A weekly record is one way to demonstrate that instruction is regular and efficient.
Monthly record (example and template) (docx - 35.12kb)
A monthly record is one way to demonstrate that instruction is regular and efficient.
Working with Victorian home educators, we have developed the following samples of material that could be submitted in a review. The samples have been commented on by our reviewers.
These samples are for reference only. Each sample represents one of the ways you can demonstrate how you're meeting the requirements of registration. Meeting the requirements will depend on the content submitted in each individual case.
Review 1: Blog (pdf - 1.63mb)
Submitting a blog extract provides a snapshot of activities over a period of time. It describes learning activities with supporting photo evidence.
Review 2: Report (docx - 757.64kb)
A written report can demonstrate how regular and efficient instruction is occurring. The evidence provided in the report (parent reflections, photos and evidence of work samples) can also demonstrate how learning areas are being substantially addressed.
Review 3: Parent journal with photos (pdf - 1.65mb)
Journal extracts can demonstrate that regular and efficient instruction is occurring. Detailed journal entries, supplemented with photos and samples of learning activities, can further demonstrate that learning areas are being substantially addressed.
Review 4: Activity coversheets and monthly record (docx - 87.82kb)
Samples of your child's learning activities accompanied by coversheets can show instruction across the learning areas and, depending on the activity or detail given in the coversheet, regular and efficient instruction. If unsure, you can further demonstrate evidence of regular and efficient instruction by including a monthly or weekly record.
Remember, if you are unsure about how to approach your review, contact our Home Schooling Unit to discuss the best way for you to demonstrate you're meeting the requirements of registration:
