Partnerships between schools and CFA are currently formed to support the Advance program funded by the Office for Youth. Some schools also seek CFA participation to support the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL).
Schools interested in applying for the program do so via the Office for Youth and in consultation with CFA.
CFA may be able to enter a partnership with schools in the Advance or VCAL programs in areas where it has responsibility for the delivery of fire services, on private land throughout rural and outer urban Victoria.
CFA may be able to provide one or more brigades to service a school depending on:
- Proximity of school to brigade
- size and workload of brigade
- school population catchments
- availability of volunteers
- content requested
