You can be involved as a parent, guardian, school, teacher or business; we love to collaborate with all those who are passionate about supporting children through education, from babies through to adulthood and beyond.

Homeschooling – what really happens?
The number of parents choosing home education or homeschooling is on the rise. In this article, Home Education Network Victoria explains what homeschooling looks like and busts some of the myths that are out there. VPC supports parent choice in education, and this includes families choosing homeschooling. The VPC has therefore invited HEN Home Education Victoria to write an introduction Blog about home education in Victoria and about their organisation. They have organised an introduction session on 7 June 2023. There is a registration link in the blog.
We are continuing keen to hear about the experiences of homeschooling families, so VPC is better able to extend opportunities to support the important work of home education. We are still collecting data in our survey.
