The VCE Resource Development Contractor will engage with each writing team and VCE Resources Project Manager throughout the development, writing and editing processes, ensuring the timeline is adhered to. This process involves liaison with the Quality Control Reviewers and ACHPER Victoria to ensure appropriateness and factual accuracy of content.
