In particular, Regional Councils play a key role in:

Each Regional Council has a minimum of 5 members, who are appointed by the Minister for Training and Skills, including an elected Chairperson and elected Deputy. Regional Councils may also co-opt two additional people for up to 12 months.

Freedom of information

The Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the FOI Act) allows the public a right of access to documents held by the Board, including documents created during work done for the Board and documents supplied to the Board by an external organisation or individual.

The FOI Act gives members of the public the right to access information held by government departments, local councils, ministers and other bodies subject to the FOI Act.

The FOI Act allows the Board to refuse access, either fully or partially, to certain documents or information, such as:

  • Cabinet documents
  • some internal working documents
  • law enforcement documents
  • documents covered by legal professional privilege (for example, legal advice)
  • personal information about other people
  • information provided to the Board in confidence.

Making a request

Freedom of information requests may be submitted to the Board via the freedom of information form on the website of the Office of the Victorian Information Commissioner. Search and access charges may apply.

A freedom of information request must be in writing and clearly identify the types of material sought. It may be made directly to:

Freedom of Information Manager
Adult, Community and Further Education Board
Department of Education and Training
GPO Box 4367
Melbourne VIC 3001

Processing time for freedom of information requests is 30 days. In certain circumstances, this can be extended.

Applicants who are dissatisfied by a Board decision under the FOI Act may seek a review by the Office of the Victorian Information Commissioner within 28 days of receiving the decision letter.

Freedom of information statistics

For the 12 months ending 30 June 2022, the Board received no new freedom of information applications.

Further information

Further information regarding freedom of information can be found in the FOI Act, its associated regulations, or online at the website of the Office of the Victorian Information Commissioner.

Compliance with the Building Act 1993

The Board does not own or control any government buildings. Consequently, it is exempt from notifying its compliance with the building and maintenance provisions of the Building Act.

Competitive neutrality policy

Competitive neutrality requires that, where services of government business compete or potentially compete with those of the private sector, any advantage arising solely from government ownership be removed if it is not in the public interest. Government businesses are required to cost and price these services as if they were privately owned. Competitive neutrality policy supports fair competition between public and private businesses and provides government businesses with a tool to enhance decisions on resource allocation. This policy does not override other policy objectives of government and focuses on efficiency in the provision of service.

The Board does not operate as a business whose services compete, or potentially compete, with the private sector, therefore the National Competition Policy is not applicable to the Board.

Compliance with the Public Interest Disclosures Act 2012

The Public Interest Disclosures Act encourages and assists people with making disclosures of improper conduct by public officers and public bodies. The Act protects people who make disclosures in accordance with the Act, and establishes a system to investigate and take rectifying action on the matters that have been disclosed.

The Board does not tolerate improper conduct or reprisals against those who have come forward to disclose such conduct. The Board is committed to ensuring transparency and accountability in its administrative and management practices. It supports the making of disclosures that reveal corrupt conduct, conduct involving substantial mismanagement of public resources, or conduct involving a substantial risk to public health, safety or the environment.

The Board will take all reasonable steps to protect people who make such disclosures from any detrimental action as reprisal for making the disclosure. It will also afford justice to the person who is the subject of the disclosure to the extent legally possible.

Reporting procedures

Disclosures of improper conduct or detrimental action by the Board or its officers may be made directly to:

Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission

Compliance with the Disability Act 2006

The Disability Act reaffirms and strengthens the rights and responsibilities of persons with disability, and recognises that doing so requires support across the government sector and in the community. The department manages the implementation of a disability plan related to the employment of staff. (See the department’s Annual Report 2021–22.)

Through the Board, the Victorian Government funds Learn Local providers to provide pre-accredited training to people whose current or past life circumstances present barriers to educational achievement. The Board specifically targets funding towards vulnerable learners, including people with disability.

Compliance with the Social Procurement Framework

The Victorian Government’s Social Procurement Framework (the framework) clearly defines social and sustainable procurement as a key value‑for-money component, and outlines how it can make a difference to Victorian communities. For buyers, the framework is guidance for embedding social and sustainable procurement into existing processes. For suppliers, the framework points to methods to deliver government objectives, while continuing to participate in government procurement and grow their business.

The framework applies to all Victorian Government procurement relating to goods, services and construction.

In 2019, the Board received an exemption from developing its own Social Procurement Strategy. Instead, it has adopted the department’s Social Procurement Strategy, and has agreed to comply with all associated policies and procedures related to implementing the framework.

The framework objectives that were prioritised during 2021–22 include:

  • opportunities for Victorian Aboriginal people
  • women’s equality and safety
  • opportunities for disadvantaged Victorians
  • supporting safe and fair workplaces
  • environmentally sustainable outputs.

The department has provided advice to its staff undertaking procurement activity on behalf of the Board, on how to implement the framework.

In 2021–22, the Board directly engaged two verified social benefit suppliers.

Office-based environmental impacts

The Board’s operations are administered by the department, including the provision of department employees, facilities, office accommodation and fleet services required to support the Board’s activities. The department’s Annual Report 2021–22 disclosure includes the environmental impacts of the Board’s operations.
