At Tintern Grammar we cater to each and every child, we understand every child learns differently and every path of learning is unique and individual. In Year 12 we offer VCE, VCE/VET and the International Baccalaureate. Our Year 12 and IB students have achieved exceptional academic results.
The Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) is administered by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) and is a two year course. Apart from the study of English, no other subjects are compulsory. Students may choose to specialise in areas of interest such as the Sciences, the Humanities or the Arts, or select a more general course from these and other areas. The VCE comprises a number of ‘Units of Study’, each designed to take one semester to complete. Units 1 and 2 are designed for Year 11 students while Units 3 and 4 are for Year 12 students. There is a great deal of flexibility within the VCE so that it is possible for students to study Units 3 and 4 in Year 11.
VET in the VCE or VCAL allows students to include VET within their senior secondary certificate. Students undertake nationally recognised training from either accredited state curriculum or national training packages which may contribute to their VCE and/or VCAL.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma is also a two year curriculum that fosters high academic standards and international understanding. It is recognised by Australian tertiary institutions and major universities worldwide. The IB programme encourages students across the globe to become active and compassionate lifelong learners. Students completing the IB study six subjects including the student’s own language, a foreign language, a humanity, an experimental science, mathematics, and one other subject which may be drawn from the arts, or from a subject area already mentioned.
