A broad range of options
The DECV offers one of the largest ranges of subjects of any school in Victoria. We provide students with an opportunity to complete subjects that are either not offered at their school, or not available due to timetabling clashes or other issues. All of our subjects have been developed and are taught in accordance with the VCAA requirements, with ample opportunities for extension and challenge where necessary.
Requirements for enrolment
- Enrolment at a Victorian School
Enrolment at the DECV is subject to Department of Education and Training (DET) guidelines and is only available to students enrolled at a Victorian Government or Non-Government School.
- Principal’s approval
The Principal of the student’s home school must approve an application to study at the DECV. Any unpaid/overdue fees will be the final responsibility of the school to cover.
- Nominated School Supervisor
It is a requirement for a member of staff at the student’s home school to be nominated as their school supervisor. The school supervisor has a range of important responsibilities outlined in detail on page 4 of the Students in Schools Enrolment Handbook.
- Maximum Subject Enrolments
F-10 school-based students can study a maximum of one subject/unit with the DECV each semester.
11-12 school-based students can study a maximum of two subjects/units with the DECV each semester.
All students enrolling at the DECV require regular and reliable access to the internet. Generally work tasks are either completed directly online or uploaded as an attachment on our secure online environment. Some subjects may have print material available and will accept posted work submissions; others are available exclusively online. Even for those subjects where print material is available, students, school supervisors and parents will be expected to be able to communicate via email about the student’s progress. All student reports are available online in the DECV portal.
