Students are offered the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) that includes a curriculum program in all Learning Areas that is rich in challenges and experiences to stimulate and engage students. Students can select from a wide range of VCE Studies Units 1-4 and accredited VETiS courses.
The Year 11 VCE course consists of six subjects (i.e. 12 units). At least one of the subjects undertaken must be an English study.
The Year 12 VCE course consists of five subjects (i.e. 10 units). At least one of the subjects undertaken must be an English study.
Students can also participate in an accelerated program undertaking extension studies at universities providing selection criteria are met.
Students also have access to Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) courses. VETiS programs give young people a wider choice of learning approaches and studies in the VCE, and broaden their post-school options. Students have access to a wide range of courses from neighbouring schools and TAFE institutions. Students can include VETiS courses as part of their VCE program, but it is a requirement for VCAL if students are not undertaking a School Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship.
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.
