Pathways from school
Educational pathways extend from school through TAFE to university. With multiple entry and exit points to suit your lifestyle needs and career choices, you can start your career with your TAFE qualification and use it to gain credits and entry into a university degree. The combination of TAFE training with university education provides you with practical job-ready skills as well as underpinning academic knowledge.
In Victoria, you can complete your senior secondary education by completing the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), or by completing the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) through a secondary school or through TAFE. Either option leads to further study or employment. Your VCAL studies at Wodonga TAFE may allow you to study accredited units from courses at certificate or diploma levels, which may then be used towards further studies, shortening the time you need to complete your studies.
Youth pathways support
There are many choices when you need to make decisions about further education and careers. Sometimes it can be hard to know where to start. Wodonga TAFE provides many services to help you work out which course to study, and also to help while you are completing your studies.
Our 'Youth pathways' program assists students aged between 15 and 19 years access the resources they need and develop the skills and knowledge to help them move smoothly through their education and into the workforce.
If you are aged between 15 and 19 years and have not completed Year 12 or are not in full-time employment, the 'Youth pathways' program can help you. Please contact Learner Services for more information or to speak with a member of the youth pathways team. Find out more about Youth Pathways at Wodonga TAFE.
