The Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) – Senior – Young Mums Program offers young mothers a purpose-built alternative to mainstream secondary school education.
You’ll acquire the literacy, numeracy, and work skills to enter the workplace and become financially independent. You’ll also learn about modern parenting, and even the relaxation and cooking skills that can make your home comfortable and safe.
Upon graduation, you’ll have developed a high level of interpersonal skills, independence and the confidence to make decisions and lead others. You’ll discover new pathways into the workforce, traineeships, apprenticeships, and further education.
