DET review into VCAL and VET provision

The Victorian Government is reviewing vocational and applied learning in senior secondary schooling and needs parent and student input. They would like to hear your views, opinions and experiences regarding the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL), VET delivered to school students (VDSS) and School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBATs). The Review will deliver a final report to the Minister for Education in May 2020, including recommendations on applied learning and vocational options that:

  • are highly engaging for students
  • provide students with the capabilities for further education and employment, and
  • lead to post school-success.

Parent and student insights will help DET design a clear, consistent, credible and high-quality vocational and applied learning system that improves access to, and transitions between, school, post-secondary education and work.
