As you may already be aware, as of 1/01/2023 the provisions of the new Victorian Government Schools Agreement that will see teachers accrue time in lieu for attendance at Camps will commence. Together with the Australian Camps Association and Christian Venues Association, we have been working hard on behalf of the outdoor sector providers and schools to seek a suitable outcome.

The communique has been supported by DET and we encourage you to work with schools to ensure camps proceed. It is particularly important that you complete this survey for any cancellations or significant program variations you experience as a result of the new time in lieu provisions.
We greatly appreciate the feedback that has been provided so far and acknowledge that this situation has the potential to impact negatively on your operation. We will continue to work with Government on your behalf to seek the best possible outcomes for you, students and all concerned.
Please don’t hesitate to contact the OV team, your feedback will be very important as we continue working with DET to assess the impact and seek solutions.
