Senior students, (Years 10-12) can elect alternative pathways by selecting from a broad range of Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) units or undertake the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). The College is recognised for successfully linking these studies to Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Australian School Based Apprenticeship programs.
