VCE: THE VICTORIAN CERTIFICATE OF EDUCATION
The Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) is administered by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) and is a two-year course. Apart from the study of English, no other subjects are compulsory. The VCE comprises a number of ‘Units of Study’, each designed to take one semester to complete. Units 1 and 2 are designed for Year 11 students while Units 3 and 4 are for Year 12 students. There is a great deal of flexibility within the VCE and Tintern offers an accelerated pathway from Year 10.
VET: VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING
Undertaking this course in VCE allows students to include VET within their senior secondary certificate. Students undertake nationally recognised training from either accredited state curriculum or national training packages which may contribute to their VCE and/or VCAL.
