Review into vocational and applied learning pathways in senior secondary schooling
The Victorian Budget 2020-21 invests $38 million to support students to access high-quality vocational and applied learning pathways and develop a new vocational pathway within the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE).
This is the first stage in implementing the transformative reform agenda recommended by a review into vocational and applied learning pathways for senior secondary students led by John Firth, former Chief Executive Officer of the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA).
The review consulted widely with stakeholders. The views, experiences and opinions that stakeholders shared in these consultations were a critical source of evidence that the review relied upon to develop its findings and recommendations.
The review found major changes are needed to make sure all Victorian secondary students have access to high quality vocational training that meets their strengths and interests, an gives them the skills they need, and that leads them into further training, education and, ultimately, a great job.
