Victorian Pathways Certificate (VPC)

  • Vocational and applied learning with the support you need

Work towards your goal

If you need additional numeracy or literacy support or are simply not ready to complete the VCE Vocational Major, the Victorian Pathways Certificate (VPC) may be the stepping stone that’s missing.

While the VPC is not a Year 12 qualification, it does provide a pathway to the VCE, to entry-level vocational education and training (VET) courses or employment. It includes excellent support for students to develop the necessary skills, capabilities and qualities for success, over a two year program.

Achieve on your own terms

With this course, you can also undertake a VET or SBAT programs, or selected units of competency from a VET course. Although a minimum of 12 units must be completed successfully to receive this qualification, many students will undertake more than 12 units over the two years.

The VPC is an accredited foundation secondary qualification that will replace Foundation VCAL.
