Senior School curriculum overview

In Years 10 to 12 students are able to build on Middle School experiences and tailor a course to their personal aspirations, skills and interests within the guidelines of a future vocational pathway.

Students have the opportunity to complete either a VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education) or VET (Vocational Education and Training) educational pathway.

VCE—Victorian Certificate of Education

The VCE is a common credential for all students completing their secondary education. It is controlled by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA). Subjects have been organised into studies of four semester units. Units 1 and 2 are equivalent to Year 11 subjects. Units 3 and 4, which must be studied in a sequential pair, are equivalent to Year 12 subjects.

To accelerate their Senior School studies, students may begin one VCE subject in Year 10.

The VCE curriculum offered at Holy Trinity Lutheran College includes the following units of study:

EnglishHistoryPhysical EducationStudio Arts

VET—Vocational Education and Training

VET is a program that allows students to include vocational studies within their VCE. These vocational studies may be in the area of a student’s interest or passion. VET offers students the opportunity to:

  • combine academic and vocational studies
  • explore career options and pathways
  • undertake learning in the workplace
  • undertake practical learning in an adult learning environment
  • gain a nationally recognised qualification, which contributes to completion of VCE
  • develop skills which will equip them for the workforce.

Holy Trinity Lutheran College has undertaken an arrangement with the VET in Schools program, as coordinated by the Wimmera Southern Mallee VET Cluster. Training is delivered by:

  • Federation University (Horsham Campus)
  • Longerenong College
  • Skillinvest
  • Wimmera HUB
  • Horsham College.
