3. Many Talents One VCE

Victorian senior secondary education is changing — making sure employers will have access to more students, and a larger talent pool for future employment needs.

More opportunities to engage with your LLEN – Local Learning Employment Network.

From 2023, more students will study the VCE. The new VCE Vocational Major (VCE VM) will replace Intermediate and Senior VCAL. This means the VCE will recognise different students equally. The new Victorian Pathways Certificate (VPC) will replace Foundation VCAL. Students will have more education choices, a higher-quality curriculum and better workplace experiences – preparing them for further study, training at TAFE or work.

Why VCAL is being replaced

These changes are a result of the Review into Vocational and Applied Learning Pathways in Senior Secondary Schooling (the Firth review).The review found we needed to improve vocational learning in schools. Schools currently offering VCAL will switch to the VCE Vocational Major from 2023. Some schools that do not offer VCAL will expand their options to include the VCE Vocational Major.

What does that mean for your business?

SWL is getting even better.  SWL will be available for students enrolled in the VCE VM or VPC from 2023.

We can now offer you better services as we will have greater access to high-quality, relevant vocational education and applied learning opportunities.
