    I see that there is an update 13/8/18 about home educated children not being able to access/participate in SSV sports teams – do you know when they changed this and why? Or has it always been like this (gov crackdown?)
    I know I was advised Home could access resources DET and this has stopped too.
    Now they only let DET children do SSV sport sadly

      It is only the team-entry section that home educated kids can’t access (e.g. you can’t enter a home ed team in SSV Football comp)
      As indicated above, home ed kids can enter the individual sports (track and field etc) and also nominate for Team Vic (e.g. a home ed student is on this year’s Team Vic Softball Team)

      There is limited access to DET resources (Fuse and Scootle etc – see the government tab on our resources page. The only thing to be withdrawn has been the printed DECV materials which we used to be able purchase. These were withdrawn as DECV moved to an online format. However the 2015 materials are available free to Vic home educators through us.
