Are you a young person looking to complete senior secondary school in an alternative setting, or are mature age and would like to return to study?

If you are self-motivated and willing to take responsibility for your own learning, our VCE courses could be the answer for you. Our small class sizes offer great one-on-one opportunities with teachers in a supportive, adult learning environment.  More questions? Check out VCE FAQs.

The Gordon also delivers Foundation Programs (prepare for year 11) designed to support young learners who have found traditional secondary education is not meeting their learning needs. The courses provide personal development skills and tasters to allow students to discover their learning interests. 

The pathway programs allow students to build their skills and confidence to move into VCE or VCAL with The Gordon.  From here, they can add VET subjects and look at the possibility of a School-Based Apprenticeship. 

Suited to:
15-17-year-old learners who may not have completed Year 10 studies and are looking for an alternative supported environment to continue their studies.

Benefits of the Program:

  • Reconnect with education
  • Supported learning environment, dedicated support teachers
  • Improve literacy, numeracy and communication skills
  • Personal improvement 
  • Provide pathways to further senior-level studies at The Gordon.

Student story

Image of Alec McLachlan, VCE student

“I left school after year 10 to become a heavy vehicle diesel mechanic. About a year after my apprenticeship, working as a qualified mechanic, I started feeling mediocre about my career. 

I felt VCE for mature-aged students at The Gordon was the perfect place to start to change my career. The teachers at The Gordon were great, full of encouragement and always checking in to make sure everything is flowing smoothly. To anyone considering returning to study I'd say go for it, you will never know your capabilities until you push yourself.”

Alec McLachlan, VCE
