  • Students can maintain the integrity of their ‘art’ and do VCAL. Themed means that the compulsory subjects such as Literacy would revolve around ‘arts’ or language as much as possible
  • Depending on how many VCE units they do, it is possible that some students might qualify to receive their VCE, VCAL and VET certificate at the end of the two years!
  • Probably do their work placement in blocks.
