The 20 course units must include at least: - four course units from English, Literature and/or English as an Additional Language/Dialect, studied during Year 11 and Year 12 (at least two of these units must be completed in Year 12) - one pair of course units from each of List A (arts/languages/social sciences) and List B (mathematics/science/technology) completed in Year 12
  • Achieve a C grade average or better across the best 16 course units with at least 8 to be completed in Year 12. Endorsed programs and/or VET credit transfer (stand alone) can reduce the required number of course units by up to 6 units.
  • English language competence Achieve a C grade or better in any Stage 1 or higher course unit from English, Literature and/or English as an Additional Language/Dialect (except 1A and 1B for English as an Additional Language/Dialect). For students who have not achieved a C grade in one of their English, Literature and/or English as an Additional Language/Dialect course units, schools will need to compare a selection of the student’s work with the work samples to verify the student has demonstrated the required standard.
  • Students may apply for exemption if they are enrolled in three or fewer stage 2 or 3 pairs of units and are enrolled to complete at least 220 nominal hours of VET (leading to the completion of a qualification or approved skill set).
  • VET allows students to access a range of Training Packages that are nationally accredited and meet industry standards. Partnership arrangements are required between the school and a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) in order for learning outcomes to be recognised and to appear on the Statement of Results. The RTO may be the school or a TAFE college or a private provider. The RTO ensures that all training is delivered and assessed to ensure the student is competent to national standards. School leavers can complete national certificates with a range of providers, both private and government funded.
