Careers And Further Training

VLOs

Vocational Learning Options

Vocational Learning Options or VLOs are short career education and vocational learning programs that aim to strengthen students’ engagement with their learning and career planning. VLOs provide an opportunity for students to develop a connection between their interests and a future pathway to post-school vocational education and training (VET), higher level studies or apprenticeships in skilled occupations. Delivered in an authentic learning or work environment, VLOs provide an alternative learning experience for students whilst continuing to attend high school or college. VLOs are delivered one day per week over a 10-12 week period during school hours. Students attend school 4 days per week and then attend a registered training provider 1 day per week. Students will receive a certificate of attainment at the completion of the course.

Please contact Adrian Haynes for further specific information regarding VLOs.
