Curriculum - Vocational Education & Training

Year 10 provides both a continuation of our broad curriculum as well as additional opportunities for students to begin moving towards their likely learning pathway through Years 11 and 12. In Year 10, students are able to explore a wide range of career and vocational options through the SET (Senior Education and Training) Plan process. These experiences help students to make important decisions about their future education, training and employment.

Staff are experienced in recognising different learning styles and, through an extensive professional development program, well equipped to offer a variety of activities designed to engage students.

You can read our Year 10 Curriculum Handbook HERE for more detailed information.

The college offers students personalised pathways through Years 11 and 12. All students must participate in our Friday sport program and all students are required to study:

  • Christian Studies
  • English or English Communication
  • Mathematics A or Mathematics B or Prevocational Mathematics.

In Years 11 and 12 our students choose a combination of subjects to suit their post school goals. General and extension subjects can be studied to qualify for an Australian Tertiary Entrance Rank (ATAR) which is used for direct entry into university. Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses lead to certification, work opportunities and further study in a chosen field. Applied courses provide students with a balanced education to prepare them for work, further study and adulthood.

Vocational Education and Training (VET)

VET is regarded as education and training for work. VET is part of the education system in all states and territories and as such, all qualifications are recognised in all states and territories.

At Trinity Lutheran College, VET is offered for study in Years 10, 11 and 12. Within VET, students work towards a Certificate and Record of Results (if completed). If partial completion occurs, a student will receive a Statement of Attainment.
