HOLMESGLEN, VCAL (FOUNDATION) PROGRAM/ CERTIFICATE 1 IN TRANSITION EDUCATION


The Holmesglen Community and Transitional Education Department delivers work education programs for students who require support with their learning and/or social skills. Courses at Chadstone and Moorabbin Campus provide students with the opportunity to study a range of trade, creative and industry-specific electives in addition to core subjects including numeracy and literacy within a supportive environment.

Facilities: Purpose-built facilities include classrooms, computer laboratories, cafeterias, gymnasiums, information commons (libraries), commercial kitchens, Ramlegh Rural Learning centre and workshops for building and construction trades.

Curriculum: Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (Foundation); Certificate I in Transition Education; and Certificate I in Work Education are all offered. These courses are designed for young people who are having difficulty with Year 10 or VCE but would like to continue their education, have an inclination towards hands-on subjects, are at risk of dropping out of school, are at least 16 years of age and require support with their learning and/or social skills. Students have the opportunity to participate in vocational and skills development units, designed to explore a vast array of trade and creative options. Structured practical placement (similar to work experience) promotes employability skills while an individual learning plan ensures that each student receives appropriate literacy support, personal development and recreational opportunities. Applied learning and pastoral care are woven into the curriculum to address the learning and social needs of students.

Sport: Students participate in a range of sporting options during recreation and outdoor education electives.

Student welfare programs: Student welfare is a priority in the VCAL (Foundation) and Work Education courses at Holmesglen. Support is available through special education teachers, student counsellor, student services, literacy and numeracy support, and excellent pastoral care. With small class sizes of up to 10 and a mentor assigned to each group, everyone receives personal attention and support. Staff liaise with parents, relevant professionals and relevant agencies where appropriate, the focus being to work together as a team.
