A broad range of options
The VSV offers one of the largest ranges of subjects of any school in Victoria. We provide students with an opportunity to complete subjects that are either not offered at their school, or not available due to timetabling clashes or other issues. All of our subjects have been developed and are taught in accordance with the VCAA requirements, with ample opportunities for extension and challenge where necessary.
Requirements for enrolment
- Enrolment at a Victorian School
Enrolment at the VSV is subject to Department of Education and Training (DET) guidelines and is only available to students enrolled at a Victorian Government or Non-Government School.
- Principal’s approval
The Principal of the student’s home school must approve an application to study at the VSV. For Non-Government Schools any unpaid/overdue fees will be the final responsibility of the school to cover.
- Nominated School Supervisor
It is a requirement for a member of staff at the student’s home school to be nominated as their school supervisor. The school supervisor has a range of important responsibilities outlined in detail on page 10 of the Students in Schools Enrolment Handbook.
- Maximum Subject Enrolments
F-10 school-based students can study a maximum of one subject/unit with the VSV each semester.
11-12 school-based students can study a maximum of two subjects/units with the VSV each semester.
All students enrolling at the VSV require regular and reliable access to a computer/device and the internet. Students will need to login to the school’s online portal to communicate and submit work online regularly. They are expected to participate in multiple areas of the online courses. This includes online lessons, forums and interactives activities. All student reports are only available online.
