Welcome to Schools Connect - an online platform that connects Victorian schools with schools local and global for sister school partnerships or project collaboration.

Schools Connect provides a platform for schools to register and search for a school to form a sister school partnership with, or to find a project to collaborate on.

Schools Connect Portal resides within the Department's secure Edupass environment. To protect the integrity of the site, schools therefore will need to apply for an account before they can access the portal.

There are two simple steps for non Victorian schools:

  • Apply for Edupass account
  • Complete your school profile and submit it.

*Overseas schools may be asked to provide evidence to verify their accreditation status with relevant authorities.

Your profile will go live once you submit it. All schools with an account are able to search for one another. You can also search for potential sister school partners or collaborative projects by inputting key words.

Search for a sister school partner: enter key words eg. country, school type, school specialisation, key activities to undertake including video conferencing, reciprocal visits.

Search for a project: enter key words, eg. year level, subject areas, key topics, duration, type of activities to undertake including class to class email, school blog, teacher visit, video communication.
