VCAL curriculum strands

Vocational Education & Training (VET in the VCE)

VET Programs allow students to simultaneously complete their VCE or VCAL and obtain a nationally recognised TAFE qualification. Some of these qualifications incorporate Structured Work Placements involving on the job instruction. Sale College offers a wide range of VET in the VCE and VCAL programs.

School Based New Apprenticeships (SBNA)

Students can complete training in a variety of part-time apprenticeships and traineeships as part of either a VCE or VCAL program. The work component may be completed outside school hours or sometimes will take as much as two days a week. SNBA’s cannot be selected but need to be negotiated with employers. The Sale College Careers team can assist with investigating this option.

University Enhancement Program

Students have the opportunity to extend their VCE program by studying a University subject in Year 12. This is an exciting and challenging option for very capable and motivated students. Further information is available from the Careers Advisors.

Work Experience / Work Placement

experience is offered to students in years 10 to 12. Work experience involves school students participating in short term industry placements, which broadens their experience and understanding of the world of work and career opportunities. It benefits students in the following ways:

Work experience placements can be either during the school terms or over holidays, depending on availability and need.

For some students a mix of work and VCE or VCAL studies is an option.  Generally, this will involve an ongoing Industry Placement for VET students and is organised by the College
