Al-Taqwa College has just recently introduced VCAL in 2014, making a promising start as a provider. In a short period of time the course has attracted the interest of students and teachers forming tight partnerships with various professional organisations in the wider community. Included in this are the partnerships with high quality VET providers such as Kangan TAFE and Victoria University, providing the students with the right environment and skills to meet the ‘Real-World’ in any career they pursue.
The VCAL course is delivered over 3 levels: Foundation (Year 10), Intermediate (Year 11) and Senior (Year 12). The students are at school 3 days a week, 1 day at TAFE and 1 day in a work placement.

The VCAL course provides students with the relevant career path they require. It combines 3 learning strands, secondary college education, VET and the workplace. All students develop individual learning plans and are able to explore pathways into higher education. Most of all, they gain the relevant work experience and qualifications they need to start off in the ‘Real-World’.
