Young Parents Program – Pulse Site

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 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.

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!

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.

Language, Literacy and Numeracy Requirements

All students are assessed prior to enrolment to ensure they achieve competence at the required ACSF level utilising Diversitat’s Qualification Suitability Assessment tool (LLN Robot) and during the pre-training review interview.

The tool assesses Reading, Writing, Numeracy, Oral Communication and Learning skills; as well as the applicant’s suitability for the specific qualification applied for.

A Pre-Training Assessment is conducted prior to enrolment to determine the ACSF levels of the student. The assessment tools used are accompanied by a marking guide. This marking guide ensures consistency between assessors. All staff undertaking assessment of the completed ACSF pre training assessment tools have received training in this task.
