Travel for Staff

From Term 1 2017, Victorian government and Catholic schools will use the new Victorian Curriculum F-10. Curriculum related information is currently being reviewed and may be subject to change.

For more information on the curriculum, see:
The Victorian Curriculum F–10 - VCAA

Purpose of this policy

To ensure staff travel reflects integrity and accountability, has a strong educational benefit and represents appropriate use of public money. In line with public sector policy, travel arrangments should demonstrate 'cost containment' and only occur where alternatives such as video or teleconferencing are not viable.


Staff must use the Department’s Travel Policy when organising travel for work purposes. To download the policy, go to: Direction for travellers and travel approvers

The School Staff Travel Applications homepage will also direct you to key links and information to help in completing your travel application. Use the left-hand navigation pane on the homepage to access the School Travel Application Form.
