The organisation

The Catholic Education Commission of Victoria (CECV) is the peak body for Catholic education in Victoria.  Established in 1973 by the Archbishop of Melbourne and the Bishops of the Ballarat, Sale, and Sandhurst dioceses, it was incorporated in 2006 and acts as the voice of Catholic education in state and national matters.

CECV receives and distributes funding from state and federal governments for Catholic schools, provides strategic leadership and planning, and ensures proper governance in Catholic education statewide.  It is responsible for sector leadership in education integrity and governance and has a Memorandum of Understanding to act as a Review Body for Catholic schools with the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA).  As a Review Body, CECV supports, reviews, and monitors the compliance of Catholic schools with all registration, reporting and other requirements under relevant laws.

CECV is currently engaged in a significant organisational redesign, the overriding objective of which is to establish a robust and sustainable CECV for the future.
