We play a vital role in ensuring that every Victorian Catholic school has a voice in state and national matters, can respond to regulatory agencies effectively, and is able to meet the contemporary challenges of Catholic intellectual, spiritual and educational excellence.
As the single body representing Catholic education providers in Victoria, we work on behalf of diocesan education companies in Melbourne, Ballarat, Sale and Sandhurst, and Religious Institute and Ministerial Public Juridic Person education entities to promote Catholic education and advocate for our students’ needs.
We are also responsible for receiving, distributing and reporting on government funding provided for Catholic schools in Victoria.
In 2023, the Victorian Bishops appointed the CECV Implementation Committee to oversee and manage the most significant reform and renewal process to the CECV since its inception in 1973. This process will result in a stronger more effective organisation, to the benefit of more than 213,000 students across almost 500 Catholic schools across Victoria.
