VCAL Intermediate

General Description

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

At Intermediate level, the focus is on building knowledge and employability skills. This leads students to independent learning, confidence and a higher level of transferable skills. St Monica's College offers a rich variety of project based coursework, which includes a number of excursions and off campus events that all students are expected to be actively involved in. There is a strong focus on building external relationships with community organisations.

At the intermediate level, students should aim to be autonomous learners who are self-motivated in successfully completing their learning outcomes. It is expected that students will be able to work to deadlines and complete tasks with minimal teacher supervision.

Intermediate VCAL students will complete the following compulsory VCAL stands:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Work-Related Skills
  • Personal Development Skills
  • Industry Skills (fulfilled through a minimum of one VET Certificate and additional VET and/or VCE Units)

Successful completion of Intermediate VCAL will provide students with skills that are important for life, work and further study. The VCAL program will develop and extend pathways for students from school to further education, training and work. For example upon completion of VCAL, students can pathway into a traineeship, an apprenticeship and/or a TAFE course

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