Young Parents Program

The Young Parents Program is a re-engagement VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning) course for young mums and dads aged 15-21 years. The course has been designed to allow young parents to return to education whilst still providing care for their young children. The program is a VCAL course run over the year with regular intake points. Students wishing to fulfil the requirements of a full VCAL may be eligible to enrol in the SWEET program for the remaining VCAL units not offered at the Young Parents Program.

Course Structure

The VCAL course consists of Literacy, Numeracy, Personal Development Skills, Work Related Skills and Industry Specific Skills strands. Units are made up of VCAL, further education and VET units and total at least 10 credits. VCAL is offered at 2 levels in the Young Parents Program: Foundation and Intermediate.

Classes offered in our Young Parents Program are tailored to suit each learner and have a strong focus on parenting skills, personal development skills and work ready preparedness. Classes will cater up to 10 students, be hands on and lots of fun!
Students are enrolled and must attend 2 days per week on site and will be required to undertake homework each week.
Parents will be fully responsible for their child when in the program (no care will be provided). Toys, activities and high chairs will be provided in a room adjacent to the classroom.
