Accredited TAFE programs and work experience are offered to students on an as needs basis.  Students who have the ability to participate in an accredited program are offered the opportunity to enrol in the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL).  Other students complete an ASDAN certificate.  In their final year of school, all students are supported to transition to life beyond school.
