Applied Learning assists students to develop vocational skills while completing secondary school. This includes the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL), Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) programs or School-Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBATs).
The ALAs provide a point of recognition for student progress in any of the above programs. Teachers/trainers, coordinators, schools, education providers and employers are also recognised for their positive contribution to applied learning throughout the year.
As well as recognising outstanding achievements of students and the adults who support them, the ALAs aim to encourage future involvement in Applied Learning and uphold the importance of these programs in our community.
The ALAs are coordinated by Stride part of the Whitelion Group. Whitelion Youth Agency is an organisation for youth at risk who also offers education and learning support to young people in the Bayside, Glen Eira and Kingston areas.
