Jubilee Christian College is pleased to offer approved Distance Education to families.
The following table and information from the Qld Education Department outlines the difference between Distance Education and Homeschooling.

Distance Education

Homeschooling

-   Teacher plans program and curriculum choices approved by College

-   Parent implements teacher directed program

-   Program and curriculum choices set up by parent and/or approved by depart of ed

-    Parent plan, implement and report to department of education

-    Parent teaching student on daily basis

-   Parent playing role of sole teacher with no professional guidance

-   Teacher determines reporting and assessment procedure based on National Curriculum requirements

-   Parent legally responsible for their student’s education

-   Parent may employ a tutor as needed


With distance education, a parent enrols their child in a school of distance education and a school program is provided by that school for the child. Teachers are available to help monitor the child's learning and a teacher from the school reports on the child (as in mainstream schools). The parent is the supervisor or home tutor to the child within their home. There are state schools and accredited non-state schools of distance education.

With home education, parents develop or adapt their own program for the child. The parent or a teacher engaged or employed by the parent, is the educator of the child. The educator plans, implements and evaluates the child's learning from one year to the next. The parent whose name appears on the application form is legally responsible for ensuring that their child receives a high quality education, irrespective of whoever else may assist with the child's education.
