DET stands for Department of Education and Training. The Home Education Unit (HEU) sits within a division of DET.
The Manager of the Home Education Unit is the delegate with the authority to issue registration for home education.
The HEU was set up to facilitate the registration process. The Unit processes applications and reports and offers educational advice in relation to the process. It also disseminates information to parents and investigates new avenues that may be developed to assist parents to register a child whom they choose to home educate.
Yes. Parents can visit the Unit to discuss aspects of a child's registration with an education advisor. However, because of its Brisbane location, this is not a practical option for most families. Due to the security arrangements at Education House, it is essential to phone first to arrange an appointment time. Generally communications with the Unit are via post, email and phone.
