    Default Registering for homeschooling in VIC

    Hi,

    We will be registering for homeschooling in VIC in 2013. Long way off, I know but I want to get a start on what I might need. So, hit me- who has done it? Advice? Do they have interviews? Is it just a signed stat dec? Do you have to provide a curriculum?

    Just did this today, here is the application
    http://www.eduweb.vic.gov.au/edulibr...gistration.pdf

    You need to send that and birth certs in they can be copies and dont need to be certified. The lady said to fill it out and fax, scan and e-mail or mail this with the birth certs for the kids.

    You can do your own curriculum or the lady on the phone recommended this place if you want one made already http://www.distance.vic.edu.au/

    Hope this helps a bit if I find anything else out I can post here too:
