Finish your VCAL faster, and begin the next phase in your education or career

Fast track your year 12 (Senior) qualification over one semester (six months) and move straight into a career or further study. VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning) is an accredited secondary certificate that includes industry training. Your previous studies will contribute to achieving this qualification within one semester.

During the course, you’ll build numeracy, literacy, personal development, oral communication and work related skills. You will also learn practical skills for employment.

Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, to continue your learning journey, this program will be delivered remotely where possible.

Participants will be required to engage with learning material online and via video conferencing software rather than attend classes. Refer to our COVID-19 Online Service Standards for details of minimum technical requirements and support available. While it is expected that the course duration will remain unchanged, it may be necessary to extend the completion date if circumstances change. Chisholm will be monitoring the situation closely and inform of any changes if the duration of a course is extended.
