Our innovative model provides an abundance of choices and opportunities. Students are encouraged to pursue a unique learning journey to gain practical skills, work towards personal goals and take charge of their future.
Our VCAL program is tailored to the individual, allowing students to explore their interests and dreams as they work towards the successful completion of their certificate. We allow students to develop the tools needed to succeed not just in further education and their chosen careers, but in every aspect of their lives.
VCAL includes Literacy, Numeracy, Work Related Skills, Personal Development and Industry Specific Skills.
VET units, certificates and a dynamic wellbeing curriculum encourage students to respect, understand and value diversity, teaching cultural competency skills required to effectively navigate the 21st Century.
