The Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning is a senior course of study that may be taken in Year 11 and 12 that is designed to prepare students for entry to the work force.  Students undertaking VCAL study four subjects at school over three days; Literacy, Numeracy, Work Related Skills and Personal Development Skills. Numeracy usually takes the form of VCE Foundation Maths or VCE General Maths Further. In addition students also spend a day each week in a work placement and a day each week in a TAFE or VET course.

Entry to our VCAL program is by application and interview only.


Vocational Education and Training courses are undertaken as part of the VCE with many courses contributing towards a student’s ATAR score. These courses provide successful students with an industry recognised qualification. Most VET courses take place off site and are on Wednesday afternoons. This ensures students have the opportunity to access the broadest range of options as we do not run VCE classes at this time. Wantirna College works with the Mullum cluster to offer as wide a range of courses as possible (in excess of 60).
