Every Victorian child deserves access to a great school that prepares them to thrive in the 21st century. The Victorian School Building Authority is managing the education construction boom that will help ensure that.
We are a division of the Department of Education and Training, established in 2016, to oversee the design and construction of new schools and early childhood centres, as well as the modernisation and upgrade of existing ones.
We are a team made up of building experts, project managers, architects and specialists in relocatable buildings, community engagement and asbestos removal.
We’ve put Victoria at the cutting-edge of school design, and we innovate in everything we do. As well as reforming schools, we are transforming neighbourhoods by including sport, cultural and other facilities that can be shared with the wider community.
We have a dedicated team that removes asbestos from school buildings, and we manage an emergency maintenance program that responds to unforeseen issues and natural disasters. Our new generation of relocatable buildings can be moved from one school to another to assist in these situations, and also help us manage enrolment fluctuations.
We also run a number of grant and funding programs for schools and early childhood centres.
