The Victorian Certificate in Applied Learning (VCAL) was devised to fill the need for a Year 11 & 12 course which suited all those students for whom the VCE, as a pathway to higher education, was too narrow.
The VCAL Certificate aims to provide the skills, knowledge and attitudes to enable students to make informed choices regarding pathways to work and further education.
Personal development, the utilization of a student's particular interests, and new pathways for senior secondary students, in the context of applied learning are underpinning principles of the VCAL Certificate.
