Notice to Schools 96/2019 – 28 August 2019

Training for the conduct and administration of 2019 VCE external assessments

Principals/ Directors and VCE examination centre coordinators

It is a VCAA requirement that all newly appointed chief supervisors attend training before starting their role.

Two training sessions will be held during October at the VCAA Assessment Centre, Coburg.

Newly appointed chief supervisors responsible for the conduct and administration of the 2019 VCE written examinations must attend one of the training sessions.

School personnel who are responsible for the conduct and administration of VCE external assessments, and who are new to the role, should also attend a training session, even if their school has an ongoing experienced chief supervisor.

Schools should also consider their succession and emergency planning procedures by encouraging a current assistant supervisor to attend one of the training sessions.

Register for the training sessions through Trumba by Friday 20 September 2019.
