Allocation of strands to regions

The VCAA has established nine VCAL QA regions. These nine regions are similar to the previous nine Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (now DET) regions. Some of these nine regions have been further divided into sub regions, each with their own QA Panel and Panel Leader.

Please note: VCAL providers with more than one campus are reminded that, for the purposes of QA, each campus is regarded as a standalone provider.  Therefore, each campus needs to provide the VCAL QA templates that meet their local delivery context by the due date and participate in the QA process as required in their region.

Please note: If you are a new VCAL provider please see VCAL QA arrangements for new providers for details of your Quality Assurance requirements.

In 2021, QA for Portfolio Enhancement and Presentation – Senior will be completed by the VCAA.  The QA process for this unit will be determined in consultation with providers and the VCAA VCAL unit.

It is recommended that providers make contact with their QA Panel Leader early in the year to ensure communication is established and that they are included in all correspondence related to the QA dates and requirements specific to their region or sub region.  This includes providers not delivering VCAL in 2021.

Following the submission and validation of QA templates, the QA Panel Leader in each VCAL QA region/sub region will notify providers of their VCAL QA category for 2021, as well as the date, times and venue details for the Stage 1 and 2 VCAL QA meetings.

Contact details for all QA Panel Leaders are on the Panel Contacts page.
