GET QUALIFIED WITH US At Chisholm, you can choose a qualification level and a learning method that suits your career goals. SHORT COURSES We have a wide variety of short courses that can help you to develop your skills in specific areas. As well as providing experience in your area of interest, many of these courses can be recognised in further study and contribute to your qualification. Discover a range of short courses at chisholm.edu.au/shortcourses ENTRY LEVEL QUALIFICATIONS Foundation Courses Foundation courses are designed to help students gain valuable language, literacy, numeracy, study and job-ready skills.
Our dedicated and experienced teachers help you to develop a tailored learning plan based on your skill level and future goals. They will also provide support and guidance throughout your learning pathway. Our programs include English as an Additional Language (EAL), General Education for Adults, Work Education and Skills for Education and Employment (SEE).
VET in Schools (VETiS) Did you know that you can include vocational education and training (VET) programs as part of your senior school studies? These programs may count towards your Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and ATAR score, or your Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). Successful completion of a VETiS program provides you with two qualifications; either VCE or VCAL, plus an industry certificate. Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) If you’ve completed Year 10, you can study your VCE and VCAL Years 11 and 12 at Chisholm.
We have a number of VCE subjects at our Dandenong and Frankston locations, or you might prefer to complete a VCAL course in your area of interest. This can help you learn at a pace that suits you and be the first step on your path to a rewarding career. PRE-APPRENTICESHIPS A pre-apprenticeship is a certificate course that enables you to experience what it’s like to work in a trade, before you make a commitment to an apprenticeship. If you do continue to a full apprenticeship, you’ll be better equipped and might even be able to shorten the study component of your apprenticeship by having the subjects you’ve already completed recognised.
APPRENTICESHIPS AND TRAINEESHIPS You can combine training with full-time or part-time work, so that while learning on the job you get the necessary class time and are paid as you progress. We work closely with industry, community and government to develop programs that meet workplace needs. The best thing about apprenticeships and traineeships is that you get practical, on-the-job experience while gaining a nationally recognised qualification, which means that you can go to any company in the field and be confident in your knowledge.
CERTIFICATES Our certificate courses can be used to start on a career pathway, gain an entry-level position or round out your qualifications.
The content is created with extensive industry consultation and the units are relevant and immediately useful in the workforce. So whether you’re just starting or already well along the way to having the career you want, one of our certificate courses could be just what you need to make it all happen. 2019 Course Guide 5 2019 Course Guide 5
