Exciting Pathways

Copperfield College offers its students exciting pathways to the world of work or further study. The College is proud that it not only maintains a high retention rate of its students from years 7 through to year 12, but that it also assists a high proportion of its students achieve successful outcomes.

The College offers both a rigorous VCE pathway for students aspiring to further their education at  university as well as a successful VCAL pathway for students aiming to enter the workforce in their chosen industry. Each of these pathways is enriched by the selection of a VET subject that delivers a qualification that is recognised by the Australian TAFE system.

Copperfield’s Managed Individual Pathways Program (MIPS) is coordinated by expert school personnel. This helps senior students identify and develop worthwhile career goals and to select subjects which will maximise their opportunities both at and beyond school.

Copperfield College provides students with many possibilities for academic success:

Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE)

A pathway for entrance to University and further study.

Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL)

This combines study and work placement to equip students with key competencies and vocational work place readiness.

Vocational Education Training (VET)

A National Qualification that can be included in a VCE program and must be included in a VCAL program.
