Parents who wish to home educate children of compulsory school age must ensure that, prior to home education commencing, approval is received through DET.
If you wish to educate your child at home, you must complete and return an application form (word 77 kb). Interim approval may be granted, provided the application is completed adequately, and will remain in place throughout the approval process. Children should not be removed from school until interim approval has been granted in writing.
Further information on home education in the Northern Territory is available in the Home Education Policy and Guidelines. The guidelines contain information on the home education approval process, frequently asked questions and other information.
