Year 10 is an exciting stage of learning at Eltham High School where students look ahead to future learning pathways. It aims to provide diverse and engaging opportunities for students to develop themselves as a whole person, both inside and beyond the classroom.
Entering Year 10 students formally enter the Senior School at Eltham High School. In doing so they will begin to develop and consolidate the foundations for success in the final years of schooling. Students will explore the range of pathways open to them by studying subjects with a stronger focus on the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) whist having the opportunity to explore the range of available pathways, including either a Vocational Education and Training (VET) or VCE study through participating in the Enhancement program. Students will also participate in the Careers and Tutorial program to build confidence and independence in learning.
At VCE, students choose whether to pursue a VCE, VCE with VET, Vocational Major (VCE-VM) program of study or approved Higher Education Studies. Students engage in more rigorous academic study and devote more time to topics that correlate with their interests and career goals. These academic studies are balanced with series of skill building and personal development seminars and workshops within the Tutorial Program, and students have the opportunity to explore a variety of future pathways through career-focused events that enable them to build connections within their desired industry.
