A future built on passion
The Academy students complete a Victorian Certificate of Education – Vocational Major (VCE VM) which is a recognised Senior Secondary Qualification for Years 11 & 12. Our VCE VM program is designed for students passionate about AFL and updated by industry experts.
The VCE VM’s flexibility enables our students to undertake a study program that suits their interests and learning needs. We have developed a contextualised learning program that links to accredited modules and units selected from the following compulsory strands: Literacy, Numeracy, Work Related Skills, Personal Development Skills and VET Studies.
Alongside VCE VM, students are enrolled in a Certificate III in Sports & Recreation (SIS30115).
