Alphacrucis, as a VETiS RTO, is revolutionizing approaches to alternative pathways to ATAR, and VET in schools. St Phillip’s Christian College is set to offer ten employed positions to Year 11 Students in Certificate III in Education Support as School Based Traineeship. The Alphacrucis delivery is designed within a flexible teaching and learning model, tailored to an individual’s curriculum while allowing students to work with business one day a week, and still having the pliability if desired of gaining an ATAR grade.
This is in addition to launching the first Diploma VETiS student Year 11 with Diploma Community Service alongside her HSC, and Certificate II in Outdoor Recreation addition to their the RoSa for Year 9 students. “It’s vital that students who need an alternative pathway to ATAR can train, whilst still being able to continue to thrive in their known Christian community of belonging,” Alphacrucis Dean of Education Mark Hutchinson said, “there’s much more to learning than an academic pathway, for all of us.” As a multi-offer RTO, and with the Alphacrucis Coordinator for VET in schools, Donna McLean, vigorously pursuing new and clever ways to get VET happening, Alphacrucis is set to redefine what it means to do vocation in Christian Schools.
