Establishing Pathways for Success Year 10 Course Selection Process
Successful Pathways Vocational? Vocational Education & Training Work Placements General Courses Endorsed Programs State Training Provider (TAFE)? University? ATAR [Australian Tertiary Entrance Rank] Alternate Entry
5 All 11&12 courses offered at Shenton College: ATAR Courses [Australian Tertiary Admission Rank] General Courses VET Certificates (Vocational Education & Training) and Endorsed Programs Contribute to the achievement of the Western Australian Certificate of Education. This is also known as Graduation. 5
To achieve a WACE students must satisfy the following: GENERAL Complete a Literacy and Numeracy Assessment to demonstrate a minimum standard based on skills regarded as essential for individuals to meet the demands of everyday life and work in a knowledge-based economy. Complete a minimum of four Year 12 ATAR courses including the external examination (i.e. be eligible for an ATAR) or complete a Certificate II or higher.
To achieve a WACE students must satisfy the following: BREADTH & DEPTH Complete at least 20 units (or equivalents) including a minimum of 10 Year 12 units. Complete two Year 11 English units and a pair of Year 12 English units. One pair of units from a Year 12 List A (arts/languages/social sciences) course and one pair of units from a Year 12 List B course (mathematics/sciences/technologies).
To achieve a WACE students must satisfy the following: ACHIEVEMENT Achieve a minimum of 14 C grades (or equivalent) in Year 11 and Year 12, including at least 6 C grades in Year 12 units (or equivalents). Unit equivalence can be obtained through VET and/or Endorsed Programs to a maximum of 8 units. Up to 8 unit equivalents through completed VET programs Up to 4 unit equivalents through completed Endorsed programs Up to 8 unit equivalents through a combination of VET and Endorsed Programs
Vocational Education and Training enables students to gain nationally recognised qualifications. This training provides hands on practical experience needed for a specific career or can be used as a pathway into University studies. What is Vocational Education and Training (VET)?
Certificate Courses (VET) and the Benefits Provides credit towards the achievement of WACE. Demand for young people with well-developed vocational skills remains strong. Students can begin training at school and those who successfully complete all of the requirements will gain a nationally recognised certificate qualification e.g. Certificate II Business.
Certificate - Vocational Education and Training and the Benefits Direct links into post school Certificate course options at a State Training Provider. Students can take part in the School Pre-Apprenticeship Program and School-based Traineeships which can reduce a post school apprenticeship. These Certificate qualifications together with course grades will support students to have the competitive edge when seeking STP/TAFE entry and or employment in various industries.
School Delivery – qualifications delivered by the school in partnership with a RTO State Training Provider (formerly TAFE) – qualifications delivered by a STP offsite (1 day per week, normally advertised Term 2 and each STP has its own process and timeline) Pre-apprenticeship in Schools (PAiS) – qualifications delivered off site through a RTO/STP (1 – 2 days per week, normally advertised Term 2 and each STP has its own process and timeline) School Based Traineeships and Apprenticeships (SBT/SBA) – qualifications delivered through on the job training (1 – 2 days per week) with students receiving payment while training VET in School Programs at Shenton College
Workplace Learning An endorsed program the Workplace Learning Program provides an opportunity for a student to demonstrate and develop increasing competence in the core skills for work. To complete this program students must: -work in one or more real workplace/s to develop a set of transferrable work skills -record the number of hours and the tasks undertaken in a logbook -completion of a skills journal -spend 55 hours in the workplace A maximum of 4 programs may be completed in years 11 and 12.
Endorsed Program A student can only use endorsed programs for 2 units of equivalence in Year 11 and two units in Year 12 - but this must be considered in relation to the total number of equivalences being claimed for through VET.

State Training Admissions Currently working on a model for admissions incorporating new WACE requirements Consultation process underway Transition arrangements will be in place
University Entry Requirements Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) Final Scaled Score of 50 or better in an English or Literature ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) – is a percentile ranking. The sum of four (4) best ATAR courses. This is the student’s TEA (Tertiary Entrance Aggregate). An ATAR high enough to gain entry into the course of choice. Pre-requisite courses (as required) TISC
To achieve a WACE, students will be required to complete the Online Literacy and Numeracy Assessment (OLNA) and demonstrate achievement at or above a minimum standard. The OLNA has three components – reading, writing and numeracy. Students who achieve Band 8 or higher in the associated component of their Year 9 NAPLAN tests will be recognised as having met the standard required for that component of the OLNA. Literacy and Numeracy Assessment
Students will be required to undertake the OLNA in Semester 1, Year 10 unless they have prequalified for one or more components through achievement of Band 8 or higher in the Year 9 NAPLAN tests. If the student does not meet the standard in Semester 1, then they must sit in Semester 2, Year 10, and, if required, Semester 1, Year 11. From then on, and if required, students may choose when next to sit the assessment. If students do not meet the literacy and numeracy standard by the time they exit secondary school, they can apply to the Authority to re-sit the assessment. All students (whether they have achieved the WACE or not) will receive a Western Australian Statement of Student Achievement – a record of all courses and or programs completed. When do students sit the OLNA?
Year 10 Program Provide students with a balanced education Allow some flexibility for students to select subjects that will add breadth to their education. Students are able to select subjects in which they are interested, and would like to develop some knowledge and understanding, but may not (at least now!) intend to study beyond Year 10.
Year 10 Program Provide students with the opportunity to experience subjects that they may be considering for study in Years 11 and 12, and so contribute to appropriate course selection for Year 11. Ensure that students acquire the appropriate background for the successful study of specific subjects at Year 11 level. Prepare students for the rigorous assessment programme in Years 11 and 12.
Shenton Y10 Program: ‘A’ Courses ‘A’ courses are semester long and lay the foundation for a successful pathway into that area of study in year 11&12. Subject to availability students may take ‘A’ courses in Semester 1 or 2. ‘A’ courses may be combined with a ‘B’ to give a yearlong focus. Satisfactory completion of a Course ‘A’ is considered necessary for students considering a Year 11 pathway in that subject.
Shenton Y10 Program: ‘B’ Courses ‘B’ Courses are semester long and assume the satisfactory completion of the corresponding ‘A’ course in Semester 1. These courses are recommended for students seriously considering a Year 11 pathway in that subject. Satisfactory completion of a Course ‘B’ is regarded as an excellent foundation for students considering a Year 11 pathway in that subject. Prerequisite: satisfactory performance in Semester 1
Shenton Y10 Program: ‘C’ Courses ‘C’ Courses are year-long and are required for Language and Music students. Satisfactory completion of a Course ‘C’ is required for students considering a Year 11 pathway in that subject. Prerequisite: strong performance in Y9 with Teacher Recommendation
