In some major news, there are significant changes coming to the VCAL program over the next two years.

The Victorian Government has reviewed Vocational and Applied Learning Pathways (the Firth Review) and will adopt its recommendations to replace VCAL with a two year Vocational Specialisation within the VCE.

From 2023 there will no longer be Intermediate or Senior VCAL for Certificate enrolment. However, for one year only, the Senior VCAL curriculum will be taught in 2023. A new foundation pathways certificate will also be introduced to replace Foundation VCAL.

The changes represent the biggest overhaul of VCE since its inception.
