The Victorian Prevention and Health Promotion Achievement Program recognises achievements in promoting health and wellbeing in:

  • schools and early childhood education and care services
  • workplaces and workforces
  • local communities.

Jointly developed by the Department of Health and Department of Education and Training, the Achievement Program reflects the Victorian Government’s ongoing commitment to improving children and young people’s health and wellbeing.

Schools can work through health priorities simultaneously, at a pace that suits their needs. Once benchmarks for health priorities have been met, the school can apply for recognition.

Victorian primary schools and licensed early childhood education and care services are invited to register. For more information, see:
