Study options for school leavers

Vocational training

With more than 200 nationally accredited courses delivered at nine campuses across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria, we’ve got something for everyone.


Our pre-apprenticeship courses provide students with the opportunity to gain a realistic expectation of the work involved in a particular trade and to learn basic trade skills. In most cases, credits gained from a pre-apprenticeship course can help reduce the total length of apprenticeship training. This type of training can also increase a student’s chances of securing an apprenticeship as many employers prefer candidates who have undertaken a pre-appenticeship.

Apprenticeships and Traineeships

With a combination of on-the-job training and on-campus learning, apprenticeships and traineeships provide students with a way to earn while they learn skills for the job. Our apprenticeship and traineeship courses span across more than 30 study areas and are developed in consultation with industry, for industry.

Work Education Program

Designed specifically for young people with mild intellectual or learning disabilities, our Work Education program is an entry level course which helps students to improve their work skills and gives them real work experience in various industries. Participants also learn organisational, communication, numeracy and employability skills in a nurturing environment.

Foundations Programs

For young people who are looking to improve their basic reading and writing skills or need extra help to improve their English, our Foundations Programs can help. With experienced teachers and flexible delivery to help students learn at their own pace, participants can gain the confidence to take the next step in their studies or career.

Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE)

Our VCE program provides an alternative option for students who want to study in a learning environment that offers more flexibility than a mainstream school. Students can study either full-time or part-time, and classes are offered during the day and the evening.
