Head Start (reference 116)

Head Start is a new apprenticeship and traineeship pathway for secondary students. Head Start students spend more time doing important, paid, on-the-job training while completing their VCE or VCAL at school.

Funding allocation

SRP credit funding will provided to participating schools that host Head Start staff.

Funding will cover salary and will be allocated based on salary rates and time fractions of Head Start staff employed in each cluster.

Operational costs

Operational costs will be funded through the schools targeted funding governance portal (edumail account required).

Note: Arrangements are currently being made so mileage can be processed in eduPay and charged directly to the program area. This process will be finalised after the Confirmed budget release.
