VCE and VET
Students are offered the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) that includes a curriculum program in all Learning Areas that is rich in challenges and experiences to stimulate and engage students. Students can select from a wide range of VCE Studies Units 1-4 and accredited VETiS courses.
The Year 11 VCE course consists of six subjects (ie 12 units). At least one of the subjects undertaken must be an English study. The opportunity exists for students to participate in an accelerated program on the basis of overall academic performance and general aptitude. Students can select a VCE Unit 3 and 4 subject providing selection criteria are met.
The Year 12 VCE course consists of five subjects (i.e. 10 units). At least one of the subjects undertaken must be an English study.
Students can also participate in an accelerated program undertaking extension studies at universities providing selection criteria are met.
Students also have access to Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) courses. VETiS programs give young people a wider choice of learning approaches and studies in the VCE, and broaden their post-school options. Students have access to a wide range of courses from neighbouring schools and TAFE institutions. Students can include VETiS courses as part of their VCE program, but it is a requirement for VCAL if students are not undertaking a School Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship.
