VCAL Courses

Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL)

There are currently 3 course levels offered at The Hester Hornbrook Academy — Foundation, Intermediate and Senior.

  • Foundation courses are the equivalent of a Year 10 education.
  • Completing Intermediate or Senior VCAL provides students with a year 12 equivalent certificate and the opportunity for tertiary studies including TAFE, bridging courses to university, apprenticeships and broader employment options.

There are no formal entry requirements for VCAL

Students can apply to enrol between the ages of 15 and 25. At the Academy, these courses are full-time study, but they are also flexible to each student’s personal needs.

VCAL is an accredited Senior Secondary qualification which covers 4 strands:

  • Literacy and Numeracy
  • Work Related Skills
  • Industry Specific Skills
  • Personal Development Skills

Our program focuses on project-based applied learning and gives you opportunities to learn and apply your knowledge to real world tasks and problems in a range of contexts.

The Industry Specific strand is met by completing Vocational Education and Training (VET) units.
