The Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) is a practical option for students in Years 11 and 12. It is designed to prepare students for further education, training or employment by providing them with work-related experience, literacy and numeracy skills and an opportunity to develop personal skills (from the Good Schools Guide, 2019)
VCAL will be introduced in 2021. We are thrilled to welcome our new VCAL and Pathways Leading Teacher in Michelle Galea to the Wheelers Hill Secondary College team for 2020. Michelle will work to further develop our planning for the inception of VCAL in 2021.
VCAL is a viable and important alternative to the Victorian Certificate of Education (or VCE), and the College is pleased to be able to add VCAL to the course options available within the Senior School.
More information will be shared about our exciting VCAL Program in the near future. If you have any queries, including queries concerning enrolment into the VCAL Program for 2021, please contact the General Office on (03) 9561 5811.
