A hands-on option for students in Years 10, 11 and 12. The Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) provides students with a more flexible approach to their education and training.

It aims to provide the skills, knowledge and attitudes to enable students to make informed choices regarding work and further education.

Our program gives students practical work-related experience, as well as literacy and numeracy skills and the opportunity to build personal skills that are important for life and work. Like the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), VCAL is an accredited senior secondary certificate.
