About the program

The Victorian Pathways Certificate (VPC) will be introduced in 2023 to replace Foundation VCAL.

The VPC is designed to support students to transition either to the VCE Vocational Major or to entry level VET or employment.

The VPC is suitable for students whose previous students schooling experience may have been disrupted for a variety of reasons, including students with additional needs, students who have missed significant periods of learning and vulnerable students at risk of disengaging from their education.
