VCAA Authorisation for VCE or VCAL delivery

Any education and training provider applying to become a senior secondary education provider must be authorised by the VCAA, the owner of the two courses accredited by the VRQA which lead to the award of the qualifications of the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) (Education and Training Reform Act 2006, s 2.5.3).

Providers applying for authorisation to deliver VCE or VCAL must demonstrate capacity to comply with the associated minimum standards for registration and the conditions set by the VCAA (Education and Training Reform Regulations 2017, Schedule 8).

In addition, the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 requires all education and training providers in Victoria to be registered by the VRQA before they can offer and deliver an accredited senior secondary course. Information on registration is available on the VRQA website.

 

Where to apply for authorisation

School providers who intend to deliver the VCE and/or VCAL must provide evidence for authorisation as part of their registration application to the VRQA. See: process information and evidence required for authorisation.

Non-school providers apply directly to the VCAA for authorisation before making any registration application to the VRQA. See: process information and evidence required for authorisation.
