The qualification aims to provide the skills, knowledge and attributes to enable students to make informed choices about pathways to work and further education. Personal development, students’ interests and pathways for senior secondary students, in the context of applied learning, underpin the principles of VCAL. The VCAL acknowledges these principles by the development of knowledge and:
Employability skills that help prepare the student for employment and for participation in the broader context of family, community and lifelong learning
Skills that assist the student to make informed vocational choices within specific industry sectors and/or facilitate pathways to further learning.
The VCAL certificate at Intermediate and Senior level recognises completion of a senior secondary qualification and primarily prepares students for further studies at the next VCAL level, in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and in VET and/or employment.
Students enrol in a VCAL learning program at the level that matches their skills and abilities. A typical example may be a student starting at Foundation or Intermediate level in Year 11.
This course is delivered with a combination of online and on campus workshops.
