Learning continuity during remote teaching and learning

Victorian students, teachers and support staff have begun a staged return to on-site schooling. This follows advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer.

The return to school will take place in two stages. This will give the Victorian Chief Health Officer and Government time to monitor and evaluate the effects that the staged return to school has on the increased movement of people and transmission within the community.

About remote learning

Learning from home means using or adapting important features of your school to support and enable remote curriculum delivery. This includes:

  • how teachers will design and plan, individually and collectively
  • what curriculum content you’ll deliver
  • how you’ll deliver curriculum content during the day and across the week(s), which may include using technologies
  • how you’ll assess student learning
  • which cohorts are likely to need additional support, and how you’ll support them
  • what school and other leaders’ roles and responsibilities will be
  • what existing structures, processes and resources in the school you might leverage
  • the relationships the school currently has that you might successfully leverage, including relationships with other schools, allied health professionals and with community and/or industry partners.

Detailed contingency planning advice for school leaders has been directly communicated to schools. 

The Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) has published more advice for students undertaking senior secondary qualifications.
