If parents choose Home Education, they have the option to either direct the education of their child themselves, or choose a shared responsibility program where both the parent and a certified teacher shares the programming. In either case, the responsibility of the parent in home education includes:
- Establishing the learning outcomes, goals and targets based on current learning skills
- Determining learning activities, instructional methods and resources used to deliver the learning, and
- Assessing and evaluating student learning growth throughout the year.
How Do I Get Started?
- Become informed
- Book an intake meeting
- Declare learner outcomes
- Complete registration forms
- Attend the intake meeting
- Create initial learning plan
- Meet with facilitator

A parent who intends to provide a home education program must develop, administer and manage the home education program. The parent provides a written description of the program, called a “learning plan”, that includes:
- the learner outcomes that are appropriate to the child’s program,
- a list of activities selected, which enable the student to achieve the learner outcomes,
- instructional methods and resources to be used,
- the means for conducting evaluations of the student’s
- progress including a method for documenting and gathering evidence of learning,
- the name of the person instructing the home education program, if not the parent.
