| The Later Years - Douments, Forms & Links
The following links download all relevant forms and publications or take you to other websites where important information can be accessed. They are organised into four categories:
- 2012 Later Years Handbook
- This document outlines the Kambrya College Later Years pathway options in detail, including the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL), Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS), and Australian School Based Apprenticeships (ASBAs).
- 2012 VCAA Administrative Handbook
- This document is produced by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) and outlines all the rules, regulations and protocols that VCAA prescribe for the facilitation and completion of all Later Years pathways. The VCAA Rules for Assessment are clearly outlined in this document, and it is vital that all students and parents familiarise themselves with these regulations as they are strictly enforced. The document can be downloaded from the VCAA website at www.vcaa.vic.edu.au
- 2012 Later Years Key Dates
- This document is produced by Kambrya College and outlines all the essential dates that affect Later Years students. It is a composition of all important events/deadlines that are prescribed by both the VCAA and the College.
- Year 12 Student Commitment
- This document is for Year 12 students only. This must be signed by both the student and parent at the start of the academic year. It outlines the specific student privileges and commitments that are assigned to Year 12 students.
- Application for Planned Extended Absence form
- All students in the Later Years must meet a minimum 80% attendance requirement to achieve their certificates. Extended absences for any reasons are strongly discouraged (except with supporting medical certificates). If an extended absence is planned, the attached form must be completed by both parent and student and submitted to the Later Years Office.
- Atypical Enrolment Request form
- If a student wishes to enrol in a VCE or VCAL program which is outside the College’s protocols, they must complete this form and submit it to the Later Years office.
- Year 11 Mid-Year Change of Subject Request form
- Whilst it is strongly discouraged, Year 11 students may apply to change from one subject to another at the change of semester. Students must complete and submit this form to the Later Years office.
- VCE Study Designs and Past Examination Papers
- Students should familiarise themselves with the VCE study designs for their respective subjects, and are also encouraged to use past examination papers for study and revision. These documents can be downloaded from the VCAA website at http://www.vcaa.vic.edu.au/vce/index.html
- Structured Workplace Learning Arrangement Form
- Before any student may legally commence a Structured Work Placement as part of their VCAL program, they must complete the relevant documentation and submit it to the Careers Office. This requires signatures from the student, parents, employer and the College Principal. Without this documentation, the student and the employer are not covered by the DEECD insurance or Work Cover.
- Structured Workplace Learning Logbooks
- These logbooks must be completed by all Intermediate and Senior VCAL students as a record of their Work Placements. Each student is provided with a copy at the commencement of the school year (included in school fees), but will not be issued with replacement copies should they lose it.
- VCAA VETiS website
- In addition to the information outlined in the Kambrya College Later Years Handbook, information regarding the inclusion of VETiS courses as a part of either VCE or VCAL pathways is available at the VCAA website: www.vcaa.vic.edu.au
- South East Local Learning and Employment Network (SELLEN)
- SELLEN is responsible for VETiS Coordination in the Southern Eastern Metropolitan Region. Their website has descriptions of all VETiS programs available in the region, including program summaries, providers, costs and application procedures. Information can be downloaded at www.sellen.org.au
