Arrangements for existing providers

Providers who have delivered the VCAL prior to 2020 are referred to as existing providers. This includes non-school senior secondary providers who have been reregistered and providers who are expanding their VCAL provision.

VCAL providers in each VCAL QA region will be required to submit up to two VCAL units for VCAL QA. After the QA templates have been submitted to the QA Panel Leader, the regional VCAL QA panels will determine the category status for each provider. The regional VCAL QA panels will determine the best method for providing feedback to participating providers.

Category 1 providers

Providers that are allocated Category 1 status are not required to attend the VCAL QA Stage 1 and 2 meetings; however, attendance at QA is encouraged and highly recommended.  Providers may choose to attend QA stage 1 and/ or 2 meetings for professional development and networking purposes. 

Category 2 and 3 providers

Details on the date and venue for the Stage 1 meetings will be provided by the QA Panel Leaders.

VCAL providers required to attend the Stage 1 meeting may be required to submit copies of their QA template to facilitate discussion at the meeting.  The number of copies required for submission may vary between VCAL QA regions. Providers should contact their QA Panel Leader to confirm the number of copies they must submit.

The following are the VCAL QA arrangements for existing VCAL providers, allocated to Categories 2 and 3 in 2020:

  • Category 2 providers are required to attend the Stage 1 meeting and may also be required to attend the Stage 2 meeting.
  • Category 3 providers are required to attend both Stage 1 and 2 meetings.

The VCAL QA panel may also request additional VCAL units/strands and/or a different VCAL level to be submitted for VCAL QA. The relevant QA Panel Leader will contact individual providers where this is the case.

Providers with questions regarding the 2020 VCAL QA process for their region should contact their QA Panel Leader.  For QA panel Leader contact details please see the Panel Contacts page.

Stage 2 meeting details for Categories 2 and 3 providers

Details on the date and venue for your Stage 2 meeting will be provided by the QA Panel Leader for your VCAL QA region.

VCAL providers required to attend the Stage 2 meeting may be required to submit copies of their VCAL QA template to facilitate discussion at the meeting and a student’s portfolio of evidence for each template submitted. The number of copies required for submission may vary between VCAL QA regions. Providers should contact their QA Panel Leader to confirm the number of copies they must submit.

It is recommended that the teacher/s who attended the Stage 1 VCAL QA meeting also attend the Stage 2 VCAL QA meeting. At the Stage 2 meeting, teacher/s will work in small groups with a VCAL QA panel member to compare and discuss assessment judgements.
