Hands-On VCAL – The BASE

At You Turn at The BASE we understand that people engaged in education have the best outcomes for their future. However not everyone stays engaged in school and some people need a program that is more personalised to their learning needs and points them back in the right direction of education and employment.

We offer a hands-on approach to the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). Foundation VCAL is open to all ages and is suitable for students who have an interest in trades and enjoy practical learning. You will learn foundation reading, writing and numeracy and you will have the opportunity to be introduced to three different trades: carpentry, mechanics and spray painting.

VCAL is a recognised senior secondary qualification. When you have successfully completed this course you may want  to start an apprenticeship, find a job or complete VCAL Intermediate or VCE.

YouTurn at The BASE offers an alternative to mainstream schooling.

Our program is suitable for people who are:

  • aged 15  and older, disengaged from mainstream school or haven’t completed at least year 10.

The program offers a strong focus on Literacy, Numeracy, Personal Development and Industry Specific skills.
