Your world. Your VCE | Youth Central

Senior secondary education in Victoria now gives you greater pathways and choices to explore your world of passions and talents.

It’s all about having the flexibility to choose the right option for you, opening up post-school opportunities and careers in Australia’s most in-demand industries.

The Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) offers a broad range of study possibilities. That includes the VCE Vocational Major, a new two-year vocational, applied learning program within the VCE.

Whether you're into music production, hospitality or agriculture, VCE Vocational Major students finish school with an employability edge, ready to take on work, life and more study.

There’s also the Victorian Pathways Certificate, a new option for students who may not be ready or able to complete a certificate at a VCE level.

You can add vocational education training (VET) subjects to any of these pathways, giving you practical skills and knowledge for work and further study.

Whether you want to take on university, TAFE, an apprenticeship, traineeship, or head straight into the workforce when you finish school, there is a secondary pathway that will help you get there.

For more information, talk to your school’s career counsellor or visit the VCE webpage on the Vic Gov website.
