What has happened to VCAL?



In 2019, The Victorian Government commissioned a review of the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning(VCAL).  The certificate has been running in Victoria for 20 years and has provided very positive outcomes for a large number of students. The review provided 38 recommendations to the government to enhance the quality of the certificate. These have been adopted in the new changes to the certificates being offered.
