Cleaning regional schools

​​​​Regional school councils engage contract cleaners through the school contract cleaning panel.

Cleaners on this panel have satisfied certain criteria, including:

  • high cleaning standards in schools
  • current working with children checks
  • high standards of occupational health and safety
  • correct payment of wages and entitlements to employees.

Cleaners go through ongoing audits to maintain their panel agreement and cleaning contract.

Find an approved contractor

Regional schools can use the cleaning panel search tool (edumail login required) to find an approved contractor.

Apply to be on the regional cleaning panel

Cleaning companies seeking to clean Victorian Government schools must have Department approved cleaning panel status. To obtain this the company must complete the online application form.

Please note that applications will only be assessed for service providers that intend to clean regional schools as metropolitan schools are under an area based model that commenced in July 2018.
