The VCAL program is not available in 2023 under the new Senior Education changes as specified by VCAA. If you are a year 11 VCAL student in 2022 when completing your year 12 schooling in 2023, you will be transferred to complete a VCE – Vocational Specialisation, where a VET and work placement is mandatory. In the event you cannot get one you will be moved to a mainstream VCE pathway.
