The Virtual Creative Professionals in Schools (VCPS) Program is a pilot program designed to investigate innovative and effective delivery methods to enable partnerships between remote schools and creative professionals and arts organisations using new technologies.

This pilot program brokers and supports creative partnerships between creative professionals and arts organisations and Victorian schools. 

Individual creative professionals can partner with a school or cluster of schools for projects costing up to $15,000. Arts organisations can partner with a school or cluster of schools for projects costing up to $35,000.

The VCPS partnership projects are supported by the Education Partnerships Team at Creative Victoria and the Department of Education and Training's (DET) Digital Learning and STEM Branch.

EOIs from creative professionals and arts organisations close on 23 December 2016.
