Learning plan guidance

New registrations require the submission of a basic learning plan per child for the first 12 months.
Note learning plans are not required for children who were registered as at 31 Dec 2017.


There are two optional templates available if you wish to use one:

  • Structured learning plan template (by learning areas) Word or PDF
  • Integrated learning plan template (by activities) Word or PDF

You can use your own format if you prefer, but every plan must cover:

  • When education will take place (very generally, not itemised)
  • Where education will take place (very generally, not itemised)
  • Subject matter to be covered OR the skills/learning activities planned.
  • Resources planned (does not have to be exhaustive)

Sample Learning Plans

Learning plans do not need to be voluminous.

The following sample learning plans have been developed by the Victorian Home Education Advisory Committee and are acceptable to the VRQA. They cover different ages and circumstances.

To register, produce your own learning plan using these as a guide.
