Victorian Home educators are required to register with:

Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA)

Email: home.schooling@edumail.vic.gov.au

To register, complete and lodge the Application form together with a Learning Plan for each child. (Word or PDF)

Learning Plans


There are two optional templates available:

  • 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)

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.
