    Application for

    Registration for Home Education

    The following information should be read before completing the application form.

    Please keep this information sheet for your future reference.

    INFORMATION GENERAL

    1. Under sections 176 and 239 of the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006 (EGPA 2006) a parent must

    ensure that any child of compulsory school age is enrolled at and attends a state school or non-state

    school or if in the compulsory participation phase is participating in an eligible option. One of the ways in

    which parents may meet these obligations is to register their child for home education under section

    208 of the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006.

    Note: [Compulsory school age means a child is at least 6.5 years of age and less than 16 years of

    age or has completed Year 10, whichever happens first. Compulsory participation phase starts

    when the person stops being of compulsory school age and ends when the person gains a senior

    certificate, certificate III or certificate IV; or has participated in eligible options for 2 years after the

    person stopped being of compulsory age; or turns 17 years.]

2. Under section 205 of EGPA 2006 home education is defined as:

    Home education, for a child means the education of the child provided by one or both of the child’s

    parents, or a registered teacher, primarily at the child’s usual place of residence.

3. A parent who is seeking to register a child for home education is required to reasonably satisfy the chief

    executive that they intend to and can comply with the standard conditions of registration as described

    under section 217 of the Act.

    Two main standard conditions parents undertake to meet include:

    ? The provision of a high-quality education for the child; and

    ? The provision of annual written report on the child’s educational progress (required in the th10 month of the registration year).

INFORMATION REGISTRATION

    executive or their delegate under Chapter 9, Part 5 of the EGPA 2006.

    6. Under s.208 of the EGPA 2006 applications for registration must be made using this application form.

    a. usually resident in Queensland;

    b. of compulsory school age or in the compulsory participation phase; and

    allow time for the processing of an application for registration and gives a parent some time to provide

    additional information if requested. Provisional registration ends on the day the applicant is notified of the

    decision on the application for registration.

9. Under s.211 of the EGPA 2006 the chief executive or their delegate may require further information or

    documentation to decide an application for registration and may also require information or documents to

    be verified by a statutory declaration. If you intend to supply the child’s educational program or learning

    with the original document. You will be notified if any further information or documentation is required.
