VTAC 2018_Rondelle 200x90px_V1_burst1The Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) is a hands-on year 11 and 12 alternative designed to create an individual pathway for you to employment or further studies at TAFE. Find a Box Hill Institute VCAL course that’s right for you.

VCAL offers an educational experience that includes applied work skills and industry-based learning as well as job relevant literacy and numeracy skills. VCAL programs are more focussed, more integrated and more sustainable for those students who do not necessarily need to complete a traditional VCE to reach their desired goals.

VCAL, like VCE, is an accredited senior secondary school certificate that is recognised internationally as a successful completion of secondary education.

Students who choose to undertake a VCAL program are usually looking for pathways to further study at TAFE and/or employment, including pre-apprenticeships and apprenticeships.
