Prepare yourself for further study or future employment with this course.

VCAL Pathways provides students with the opportunity to complete Year 11 (Intermediate) within a TAFE environment. In the course students study a variety of vocational areas that prepare them for further study or employment.

The VCAL - Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning is an accredited senior secondary certificate where students can use previous studies to gain the credits required to successfully complete the qualification. There are different streams including Sport & Recreation; Visual Arts & Photography and Hospitality and Events.

Chisholm has many young people successfully completing their VCAL or VCE in an adult learning environment where they are encouraged and supported in achieving their goals.

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.
