Course Counselling starts in Term 3
If you are in year 10 and starting to think about your options for Year 11, VCE or VCAL, contact the Careers team for an appointment or post a question on the new Year 10 Careers and Pathways Google Classroom.
Mount Erin will formally start the Course counselling process for students to choose their 2022 subjects in July 2021.
You will need to work out whether to choose the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL), then select the subjects required for each.
Students can choose a VET subject in their VCE, but VET is compulsory in VCAL. See Caro Baring for more information.
