Programs – making a general booking


In line with the Department of Education and Training (DET) equitable access policy, GTAC allocates programs equally across metropolitan and rural schools. Rural government school students are fully subsidised for program costs by the DET and are eligible for assistance with travel costs. Students from schools classified as metropolitan disadvantaged also qualify for fully subsidised program costs by DET. All other schools will incur a small cost per student. Due to continually increasing popularity, demand for school group programs usually exceeds the number of places available, so your request may be placed on a waitlist.

Contact GTAC to find out your current school DET classification to see if your school is eligible for subsidies.

 

How to make a booking request

Browse our available programs to find one you are interested in and notify us of your interest through our Expression of interest forms below, leaving your contact details and any particulars for your booking. We will contact you within 5 school business days.

Please note: GTAC is not open during term breaks. Any requests made during this time will not be contacted until the following term.

Once you have placed your expression of interest, you will receive a confirmation that your request has been submitted. A GTAC team member will then contact you to discuss program details and applicable charges per student.
