High School Certificate
Melbourne Polytechnic's Koorie VCAL Foundation program offers a recognised Year 10 equivalency. Our Koorie VCAL program has been designed to re-engage young members of the Koorie community who want to get back into school. This program has a cultural focus that includs projects working with Elders, personal development skills and access to new Tech School facilities. If you're still at school, or even if you have left, and if you're older than 15 years old, and identify as a member of the Koorie community this course is a great way to get back into school and broaden your options for further study or work. The program is supported by Melbourne Polytechnic's Koorie Services staff during all sessions.Learn skills for the future
Studying VCAL at Melbourne Polytechnic will take you out of the high school environment and prepare you for further study and/or employment. You will have access to our libraries and independent learning services, in addition to friendly and approachable teachers who are there to help you learn. You'll receive supported training in literacy, numeracy and communication skills, work-related experiences and personal skills. This qualification will prepare you for further study, pre-apprenticeships, apprenticeships or employment.
You can seek Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) where your work experience or qualifications of an advanced and related nature have been undertaken. RPL is individually assessed based on evidence submitted by the student to the teaching department. Applications for RPL will be assessed by relevant Melbourne Polytechnic trainers, academics and where appropriate, industry experts.
