Review of minimum standards of senior secondary literacy and numeracy
The VCAA has been asked by the Minister for Education, the Hon James Merlino MP, to consider whether there should be an explicit requirement for students to meet minimum standards of literacy and numeracy in order to be awarded the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL).
The Minister has asked the VCAA to consult widely and to provide a report by the end of August 2018.
Read the Minister’s letter to the VCAA (pdf - 1.06mb) or text only version.
In responding to this request, the VCAA is developing a discussion paper to which interested parties will be able to respond.
The discussion paper will be posted online and we expect will be available via this page from mid-March 2018.
Metropolitan and regional consultation forums will also be arranged. Details will be posted here shortly.
If you wish to receive direct updates on the consultation please register your interest.
