Which option is suitable for you?

 



There are many combinations of enrolment at Hester Hornbrook Academy, every student is treated as an individual and these changes will also be personalised to your own journey.

 

 

For new students, this will be supported during your enrolment process. For current students, your classroom team, CAPE - careers & pathways team and school leadership will be able to help personalise your educational pathway. Below are some examples of what it may look like:

Key Considerations:

 

  • Students who have studied prior VCAL or VCE subjects may have credit transferable to their certificate, therefore there will be reduced requirements to completing certificates.
  • Students can include Structured Workplace Learning & School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships as part of their studies. Reaching out to the Career & Pathway’s team is your first step towards these pathway options.
  • Students will be assessed on a number of areas to help determine suitability for the course enrolment. This will include academic capacity, pathway options and social and emotional capacity. All decisions will be made in consultation with the student.
  • At all stages of the certificates, students have the ability to receive an enhanced statement of results and work alongside our Career & Pathways team to transition into future pathways.
