EAL Contingency (Reference 27)

Budget allowing, contingency funding may be provided to schools, English Language Schools and Centres (ELS/Cs) that have a significant increase to their EAL student profile during the school year.

Applications for contingency funding can be submitted at any time and will be assessed at the end of the term in which they are received. To receive contingency funding, schools must have an increase in their EAL student profile which meets the relevant EAL Index funding threshold.

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 2019 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.
