VCAA Authorisation process for providers
to deliver VCE or VCAL

Any education and training provider applying to become a Senior Secondary Provider must be authorised by the VCAA, the accredited owner of the Victorian Certificate of Education and the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (Education and Training Reform Act 2006, 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 2007, Schedule 7.3.3).

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 at www.vrqa.vic.edu.au

 

Where to apply for authorisation to deliver VCAL

All VCAL providers apply directly to the VCAA. Process information and the evidence required for authorisation is located here

 

Where to apply for authorisation to deliver VCE

School providers who intend to deliver the VCE must provide evidence for authorisation as part of the registration application to the VRQA. The VRQA will apply to the VCAA for authorisation on the school's behalf. Information and evidence required for authorisation is located here.

Single course providers of VCE Languages, Music or Drama apply directly to the relevant VCAA unit. Process information and the evidence required for authorisation is located here.

Non-school providers apply directly to the VCAA for authorisation before making any registration application to the VRQA under the following three categories:

  1. New VCE Provider (including initial studies for delivery)
  2. Additional VCE studies for provider's VCE program
  3. Re-authorisation associated with VRQA re-registration
