Program Structure

Project Applied Learning

GTEC delivers its curriculum in a unique way, and central to this program is the project component as it allows many learning outcomes across the different training elements to be met at the same time.
To achieve this, a problem-solving approach underpins a series of projects. The greatest learning comes from students discovering the possible solutions to a problem and then implementing them, and we believe that trial and error is a good teacher! 

VCAL subjects

GTEC and VCAL Central students will undertake subjects at either Foundation, Intermediate or Senior levels dependent on an individual assessment of their learning needs.

Rather than confining all subjects to a classroom, they are often integrated into a range of other projects for example, students will work with teachers developing Computer Aided Design (CAD) projects, ‘Fit for Work’ in the gym or outdoor education activities. Literacy and Numeracy, wherever possible, are also tailored to students’ chosen field.
