Senior Years 10 - 12

Thomas Carr College is committed to providing an engaging and innovative learning environment and developing in students independent thinking and informed decision-making. Entering the Senior School at Thomas Carr College is a significant transition for our students.

Year 10
In 2017, Thomas Carr College would be offering students the opportunity to apply to be a part of the PreCAL program. This program offers an alternative to mainstream core classes, for students interested in pathways like VCAL and going into the work place after Year 10. Further information about this program is outlined in the VCAL VET handbook, along with how to apply.

Year 10
 
Year 11
Year 11 is a significant move away from the Core and Elective subjects of Years 7 -10. In the VCE, students must complete English as well as a VCE or an internal Religious Education program. This document provides information for students who are beginning Year 11, subjects from which students will choose, VCE and VETis offerings at Year 11 and important contact information. 

Year 11
 
Year 12
Year 12 is the culmination of secondary school and more importantly, the final year as a student at Thomas Carr College. Most students at Year 12 will continue on from their unit 2 studies. The most desirable pathway into Unit 3 subjects is to have experienced the subjects in Units 1 and 2.

Year 12

PreCal, VCAL, VET

In 2017, Thomas Carr will be offering Pre CAL; a new option to Year 10 students who are interested in hands on and applied learning. The subjects will be designed for students who are interested in pathways such as VCAL, apprenticeships and getting into the work place.

The Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) pathway is an alternative pathway to success which runs parallel to the VCE. It is a hands on option for Year 11 and 12 students and provides practical, work related experiences in both the classroom and workplace settings.

VET is a growing part of the College curriculum. Participation in a VET program whilst at school, allows students to learn about industry and employment pathways and gain skills that are relevant to the needs of industry.
