Year 10 – Welcome to the senior school

In preparation for their senior years of school, students will be involved in a course counselling process that will ask them to make plans for a three year course of study (Years 10, 11 & 12) rather than treat each of the years separately. This will be unique to each student, since it will reflect their personal interests and aspirations.

When choosing courses for Year 10, students and parents need to consider the potential Pathways that are available to students, as they progress through the Senior School.

The following information on V.E.T. programs identifies many, but not all, of the available programs and lists the local providers where programs are delivered.  The information gives you an outline of the course, career opportunities and what units you can gain towards your senior school certificates, so you can make a more informed decision on the right VET course for you.  For more detailed information, or if you are interested in a course that is not listed in the Handbook you can arrange to speak with Mrs. Bruce at the College. All information is correct at the time of printing. Courses will only run if there are sufficient numbers in each class.
