Notice 182

Notice to Schools 182/2020 – 25 November 2020

VCE Early Commencement Programs reminder

Principals/Directors, VCE Coordinators and VCE Teachers

The VCAA recognises that some schools will begin teaching programs in the academic year before enrolment.

Schools are reminded that any early commencement programs in 2020 (for students undertaking VCE Units 3 and 4 in 2021) must not include formal School-based Assessment for the assessment of levels of achievement. This policy is set out in the 2020 VCE and VCAL Administrative Handbook (see page 45).

Schools are also reminded that Units 3 and 4 are designed to be taken as a sequence. Students must undertake Unit 3 before commencing Unit 4 of a study.

Action required

Principals/Directors should ensure that all VCE teachers are made aware of this information.
