Our Chadstone Campus caters for senior secondary students Years 10-12, offering the Victorian Pathways Certificate (VPC) and VCE Vocational Major certificate (VM). Both these certificates contain a practical and engaging applied learning curriculum. This curriculum is designed to provide an opportunity for students to complete their Year 12 schooling and progress to further studies or employment, including traineeships and apprenticeships.
An important element of both the VPC and VM certificates is to develop Industry Specific Skills (ISS), and students are required to complete a Vocational Education and Training (VET) course. A VET certificate is evidence of the student’s competence in a chosen vocation.
At Berengarra School, our students develop Industry Specific Skills and complete VET certificates onsite. The school provides the opportunity, within our school program, to complete VET certificates in Sports and Recreation, Public Safety and in Retail. Students are also able to gain valuable work experience in our community market program and/or at our school run café, ‘CafEducation’. Our VET Teachers and Café Manager offer a safe and supportive environment for our students to learn and achieve success.
Class sizes are small, with 12 students working with a Teacher and an Education Support staff member, supported by a dedicated Wellbeing Team.
