Pre - VCAL Year 10

General Description

The Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) is a senior secondary certificate based on vocationally orientated applied learning principles.

At Year 10 St Monica's College offers students a Pre-VCAL course. Students who enrol in this option focus on preparatory workplace knowledge and employability skills. There is a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy skills. Teaching is instructional and alongside this, students participate in a number of compulsory excursions and off campus experiences, which further develop their civic and citizenship awareness, employability skills and confidence.

At Year 10 students complete the following VCAL Units:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Personal Development Skills
  • Work Related Skills
  • In addition, all Year 10 Pre-VCAL students will be enrolled in to a VET Certificate in Employment Pathways.


Students will be issued with a statement of attainment for successfully completed VCAL Units. Upon satisfactory completion of the relevant VET units of competency they will receive a Certificate I in Employment Pathways.

If you have any questions concerning the Year 10 Pre-VCAL Program please contact: Mrs Helen Rabenda - VCAL Coordinator.
