What does the Victorian Home Education Advisory Committee do?

The VHEAC provides guidance, information and feedback on home schooling regulation.The Department of Education and Training (DET) Victorian Home Education Advisory Committee (VHEAC) provides guidance, information and feedback on home schooling regulation.

The VHEAC was established in 2017. It gives a voice to people in the home education community, including parents. Its contribution helps shape how home schooling is regulated in Victoria.

The VHEAC’s membership includes:

  • representatives from DET and the VRQA
  • an advocate for children with disabilities
  • a home education academic
  • several parents from the home education community.

The parents were elected by the wider home education community. Their role is to represent the community’s different perspectives and approaches.

The parents have been instrumental in providing guidance and feedback on the development of some of our resources, including updates to our learning plan templates and samples, and changes to the application form.

A list of the parents and their contact details are available on the Home Education Network’s website:

The VHEAC meets up to four times each year. A summary of each meeting (communique) is published on the DET website:
