Some senior students complete the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL).


The VCAL is an alternative option for students in Years 11 and 12. It provides students with practical work-related experiences; as well as literacy and numeracy skills with the opportunity to build personal skills. The flexibility within the VCAL program enables students to study a program that suits their interests and learning needs. Students select accredited VETiS courses. Like the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), VCAL is a recognised secondary certificate.

Acknowledgement of Country

We, the students at Ringwood Secondary College, acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land we are meeting on today.

We appreciate the waterways, mountains, skies, plants and animals from this land and thank our ancestors for their ceremonies of story-telling, music, dance and celebration.

We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging and promise to learn to live in a community that is part of the oldest living culture on Earth and move forwards together to a place of equity, justice and partnership.

We recognise that First Nations sovereignty was never ceded. This was and always will be Aboriginal Land.
