Founded in 2006, Holmesglen Vocational College offers VCAL, a vocational-focused program with clear pathways to further TAFE study programs and apprenticeships. The program is designed for young people who learn best using Applied Learning principles. Holmesglen aims to give each young person a skill set for success in further study, employment and life.

Facilities: Based at both the Moorabbin and the Waverley campus of Holmesglen, there are classrooms and computer laboratories and a large Open Learning Area for active learning. Vocational industry streams use the full facilities available through all campuses of Holmesglen Institute — award-winning restaurants and commercial kitchens, state-of-the-art engineering facilities and building workshops, to name a few.

Curriculum: VCAL Intermediate, VCAL Senior and Foundation mid year.

Personal Development: As part of this component students attend core training where current issues such as fitness, nutrition, physical and mental wellbeing are discussed. Later in the year students will consolidate this understanding together with the development of their chosen project, by undertaking the opportunity to use their newfound skills for educating, assisting or participating in the community.

Student welfare programs: There is a counsellor on staff qualified in careers and personal counselling. A student support program helps those struggling with literacy and numeracy.
