The Department of Education and Training is currently recruiting for volunteer VSAEC members. VSAEC members provide fair and timely review of applications related to use of animals for teaching purposes in government, Catholic and independent schools in Victoria, and approve only those that meet the ethical requirements in the Code. Additionally, VSAEC members provide advice and recommendations to the Department of Education and Training on ways to support schools to conduct all activities relating to the care and use of animals to high ethical standards. At times, VSAEC members may be asked to participate in audits of schools to monitor use of animals in schools. Applications close 30 August.
