EAL Contingency (Reference 27)

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

Budget allowing, contingency funding may be provided to schools, English Language Schools and Centres (ELS/Cs) that experience a significant increase to their EAL student profile during the school year. Applications for contingency funding can be submitted at any time during the term. Schools with existing EAL Index funded programs must have a minimum 0.2 EFT increase to receive contingency funding and schools not in receipt of EAL Index funding must meet the required thresholds.

To apply, mainstream schools should run a Contingency Report ST21038 from CASES21 and email this with a request to be considered for EAL contingency funding to the EAL Unit at eal@edumail.vic.gov.au.  The ST21038 report is used in conjunction with centrally held data to assess the application.

English Language Schools and Centres should email details of the increased numbers of students to the EAL Unit at eal@edumail.vic.gov.au



Teacher salary charges to schools in 2018 will continue to be based on actual payroll debits for individual staff as reflected on eduPay. This includes the actual cost of annual leave loading and all allowances, such as higher duties and special payments. Also included are non-cash benefits for teachers.
