The Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) is a hands-on option for students in Years 11 and 12. The VCAL gives you practical work-related experience, as well as literacy and numeracy skills and the opportunity to build personal skills that are important for life and work. Like the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), VCAL is an accredited secondary certificate. Brauer College offers an engaging VCAL Program utilising the College’s extensive community of businesses and professionals that rely on quality apprentices.
Students who complete all or part of a nationally recognised qualification may receive credit towards satisfactory completion of their VCE and/or VCAL. These may include enrolment in a VCAA-approved VCE VET program, or a school-based or part-time apprenticeship or traineeship.
Brauer College students can include VET within their senior secondary certificate (VCE or VCAL). Students undertake nationally recognised training in subjects at the College or national training packages from a variety of training providers.
