The VCAA collects the information requested in this form, which includes personal information within the meaning of the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 (Vic) for the purpose of facilitating and assessing your application for the VCE Season of Excellence.

A third party contractor, Qualtrics, collects and stores the information requested on this form securely on its Australian-based servers on behalf of the VCAA. If you complete the requested information on this form and click on Submit, the information will be transferred to the third party’s servers and accessed from there by the VCAA. Before deciding whether you wish to click on submit, you can review Qualtrics’ privacy policy statement. If you click on the link to the third party’s Privacy Policy, you will leave the VCAA’s website and be redirected to the third party’s website. Please be aware that the third party uses cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and this will provide you with an opportunity to either accept or reject it in each instance. The application form uses persistent cookies, which enables you to return to the application to complete it in another session (within one week of commencement) if you use the same internet browser and computer each time. If your internet browser is set to block all cookies, you will not be able to use this ‘save and continue’ function. The personal information collected in this form will be disclosed to and used by relevant VCAA employees and/or contractors and members of the selection panel for and in connection with the abovementioned purpose. The selection panel will be comprised of state reviewers, experienced teachers, and (for VCE VET studies) industry professionals. The personal information collected will not otherwise be used or disclosed by the VCAA, except with the prior consent of the individual, or if the VCAA is required or otherwise permitted by law to do so. When an individual’s personal information is provided to the VCAA by a third party, the VCAA requests that the individual is made aware their personal information will be or has been provided to the VCAA, the purpose for which it will be or was provided and to whom it will be or is likely to be disclosed. So if you provide personal information about another person as part of your response to the application form, please tell that person. If the requested personal information is not provided, the application may not be considered.
