Course Selection Process Students complete a Careers topic in their HASS class. Students have presentations from Learning Areas. Jan Schofield and Jane Hamburg present to all the students. Parent Night on Monday 16 th June. Parent Report day, Thursday 3 rd July. Course counselling interviews Wk 10, Term 2 and Wk 1 & 2 of Term 3. Course Selection sheets to Mentor teacher by MONDAY 4 th AUGUST.
4 All courses offered at Shenton College: ATAR General 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. 4
Sequential development All ATAR and General courses demonstrate an increasing level of complexity from Year 11 to Year 12. Course units must be completed sequentially - Year 11 units then Year 12 units. ATAR courses – students who are aiming to enrol in university direct from school. General courses – students who are aiming to enter further training or the workforce directly from school. Vocational Education & Training(VET) – VET courses developed in consultation with industry are nationally recognised.
Pathways Students can mix and match from the options provided through Shenton to ensure they have the best platform to achieve: WACE and pathways beyond school Students are selecting a two year course pathway.
GENERAL REQUIREMENTS 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:
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 To achieve a WACE students must: NOT AN AVERAGE!!
Completed qualification Equivalence (total) Credit allocation (units) Satisfies the minimum VET qualification requirement for WACE 1112 Certificate I2 units2-X Certificate II4 units22 Certificate III or higher Partial (220+) 4 units22 Full6 units24 VET equivalences For a completed Certificate I, units of competency must have a minimum of 110 nominal hours. For a completed Certificate II, the achievement of units of competency must be a minimum of 220 hours. More substantial elective units may be required to ensure the minimum is met.
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. When do students sit the OLNA?
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.
Typically, students enrolled at a school cannot sit an Authority examination as a private candidate. From 2016, private candidature in ATAR examinations will only be available to students: seeking mature age university entrance OR undertaking language courses through interstate offerings (e.g. Chinese: Background – NSW) OR Undertaking European background language courses (e.g. German background language) Private Candidates
Jane Hamburg Vocational Education and Training Opportunities
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
Combination of Alternative Courses offered to Students which take them off campus Pathway 1 – Career Access Program (CAP) - 3 courses + qualification + WPL - 3 days at school - STP, SBA/SBT and/or WPL – 2 days Pathway 2 – Alternative Pathway - 5 courses/qualifications taken at school - 1 day at PAIS, STP, SBT
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.
