VCE Subject selection preparation activities include
- Completing the subject selection preparation booklet Year 10
- Attending the VCE subject expo at school in Term 3
- Attending the VCE/VCAL information evening in Term 3
VCE/VCAL information evenings
These sessions gives our Year 9 and 10 students and parents the opportunity to become more familiar with what VCE/VCAL is and how it impacts a students’ final year in secondary education. Students and parents are exposed to presentations about the subjects on offer, the VCE/VCAL program as well as Careers Pathways and Careers Centre Services available to students at our College.
VCE Subject Expos
This is an opportunity for students in Years 9, 10 & 11 together with their Parents, to come and discuss the subjects on offer in Years 10, 11 & 12, with representatives from each of our Learning Areas.
Each Learning Area, or faculty, is represented at stalls on the evening. These stalls are attended by teachers with first-hand experience teaching and facilitating the senior subjects.
VCE Change of Subjects
Students are not advised to keep changing subjects. If they decide to, they need to comply with the policies and procedures and do the right protocol by filling in the change of subject forms.
Workshops get the students involved in the learning process: the workshops include small and large group discussions, activities and exercises, opportunities to practice applying the concepts that are presented in:
- goal setting
- time management, and
- stress management
The aim of guest speakers is to encourage students to develop a better understanding for different career pathways. The objective is exposure for the students to see as many different careers as possible. Students also get to see people’s personal journey, experiences and passion for their job. Guest speakers help build connections between our school and the local community, and offer glimpses of the various realms that students are studying and may one day enter. They have an essential role to play in preparing students for course objectives and career goals.
