What does this course involve?

Like the traditional VCAL programs we offer, iVCAL also offers pathways to higher education programs delivered by the Institute and other learning institutions. Stage one involves completing literacy, numeracy, personal development and work skills units online while stage two involves choosing vocational units which may be delivered in the traditional face to face classroom environment or online or a combination of both.

What employment opportunities will I have?

This course may provide you with the knowledge and skills to explore your chosen vocation with a view to entering that industry. As a student, the Institute’s Skills and Job Centre is your first port of call for advice on gaining employment in your chosen vocation.

Can I apply?

iVCAL is suited for learners who want to gain a Senior Secondary School Certificate but prefer to study in a non-classroom environment. You may have work or carer commitments during the day or need more flexibility in your study patterns. iVCAL students may live non-routine lives. iVCAL is designed for learners who may require one learning outcome, or one unit, or complete the whole iVCAL program to achieve their VCAL Certificate.
