The Department's International Education Division administers the International Delegation Program to enable overseas delegates to learn about and observe the operation of the Victorian education and early childhood system.

The Department can facilitate a range of short term programs tailored to give delegations and representatives from overseas education departments, schools and institutions an insight into Victorian education and provide the opportunity for the exchange of ideas between the delegates and hosts.

These programs can include:

  • general system overview of the Department's scope of work
  • Victoria's approach to: professional development, curriculum, assessment, reporting and pedagogy, school management, internationalising the curriculum

Hosting an international delegation

Hosting a delegation of overseas visitors is a great opportunity for your school’s leaders, teachers and students to benefit from professional and cultural exchange.

The school community gets the opportunity to establish links with another country and the experience can enhance teaching programs to make language, cultural and international studies come alive.

It can also be the start of an ongoing partnership between your school and overseas schools.
