For the past 10 years, registered home educators have been able to purchase distance education materials from DECV is they wished to do so. The following notice now appears on their site:
Please note: From 2017 onwards, Distance Education Centre Victoria will not be providing our printed materials for purchase by home schooling families.
We have made inquiries about this and the response from DET is:
We have been advised by DECV that due to the development of substantially online teaching and learning programs from 2017 onwards, they will no longer be making print materials available.
Home schoolers can access relevant Victorian Curriculum F-10 information on the VCAA curriculum website and additional resource material (over 15000 resources) at the Department of Education and Training’s FUSE website. FUSE has recently been updated to better align content with the Victorian Curriculum and to make it easier for users to access.
