Senior VCAL is a recognised senior secondary qualification that focuses on 'hands-on learning' for students who wish to have a Senior Certificate of Education. Students enrol in VCAL at senior level and also choose a VET skills set which will contribute towards their industry VCAL units. Students who undertake Senior VCAL are likely to be interested in going on to training at TAFE, Higher Education, securing an apprenticeship or entering the workforce.

Students who complete their Senior VCAL are considered to be work ready by industry.

Completion of Senior VCAL will help students gain employment including Australian Apprenticeships and Traineeships, or progress to further study in TAFE certificates and diplomas, or apply for university pathways.
