VCE written examinations 2017: Assessor training meeting dates

This information is for individuals who have applied to assess 2017 VCE written examinations. Only those individuals appointed by the VCAA to be assessors or emergency assessors can attend these training meetings.

Appointed assessors and emergency assessors will receive an email from the VCAA confirming their appointment, which will include the venue for the training meeting. Enquiries regarding assessor training should be directed to VCAA Assessment Operations:

Please refer to the VCE Assessors – Information and training page for 2017 assessor training dates.

Information for schools about assessor training meetings

If an offer of appointment is made by the VCAA, school-based staff who will be undertaking VCAA activities during school hours are required to ensure that their release has been approved and confirmed with their school. The VCAA may need to contact schools for administrative or audit purposes.

The VCAA provides principals in schools with information about the appointment of staff from their schools, the dates of assessor training meetings and the availability of Casual Relief Teacher (CRT) payments to secure the release of staff. In requesting the school to agree to the release, the professional development benefits are acknowledged, as is the commitment required to do the work in very tight timelines.

Enquiries regarding assessor training meeting payments can be directed to Assessment Services on (03) 9225 2305 or
