The VCAL aims to provide knowledge, skills and attributes to enable students to make informed choices regarding pathways to work and further education. Personal development and the utilisation of a student’s particular interests and pathways, in the context of applied learning, are underpinning principles of the VCAL. The VCAL acknowledges this within the development of knowledge and employability skills that help prepare the individual for employment and for participation in the broader context of family, community and lifelong learning; and skills that assist the individual to make informed vocational choices within specific industry sectors and/or to facilitate pathways to further learning.
VCAL also allows students to gain practical work-related experience to count as credit to their overall certification. Like the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), VCAL is a recognised senior secondary qualification. Students who do VCAL are likely to be interested in going on to training at a Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institute, starting an apprenticeship, or getting a job after completing school.
