The Vocational Pathways

A vocational pathway is appropriate for students that are considering the Victorian Certificate of Education Vocational Major (VCE VM) for Year 11 and Year 12.  This pathway can lead to obtaining an apprenticeship, full time work and some TAFE studies. 


VCE VM is a hands-on option that allows students the flexibility to design their programs based on their learning needs and interests. In the 11 and 12 VCE VM Program, students are required to complete a VETiS certificate.


Successful completion of VCE VM

A VCE VM Certificate can be obtained after a minimum of two years’ study. To obtain a VCE VM Certificate, students must complete at least 16 units, including a minimum of:

  • 3 VCE VM Literacy or VCE English units (including a Unit 3–4 sequence)
  • 2 VCE VM Numeracy or VCE Mathematics units
  • 2 VCE VM Work Related Skills units
  • 2 VCE VM Personal Development Skills units, and
  • 2 VET credits at Certificate II level or above (180 nominal hours)
