Independent school registration briefing

On Thursday 30 March 2023 we held a briefing for organisations that want to apply to the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) for registration as an independent school. 

The briefing covered important information for applicants including registration requirements, the registration process and briefings from Independent Schools Victoria, the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) and the Department of Education.  This included:    

  • school governance and not-for-profit requirements
  • Child Safe Standards
  • minimum standards for school registration
  • the role of Independent Schools Victoria and funding available to independent schools
  • VRQA registration and VCAA authorisation to deliver senior secondary or foundation secondary qualifications
  • Victorian Government support for independent schools.

The regulatory requirements and the evidence you need to provide as part of your application are outlined in:
