Is traditional high school not for you? Were you an early school leaver and are now ready to continue your studies? Have you been away from school for a long time but know that with the right support you can pick up where you left off?
At Holmesglen, we understand that everyone is an individual, with different learning styles and goals. Our VCAL and transition and work education courses focus on developing the practical skills you need to be a strong, independent individual. Learn how to get a job, participate at work and be good with your money. The small class sizes of eight to ten students ensure you get the attention you need. The hands on literacy, numeracy, career planning and personal skills you develop give you the confidence to live on your own and build great social and community skills.
Returning to study can be daunting – that’s why at Holmesglen we make sure you feel welcome. Courses in general education focus on giving you the basic reading and writing, maths, computing and general employability skills you need and our adult VCE courses prepare you for whatever you want to do next.
Our friendly and knowledgeable teachers are passionate about helping you learn and succeed, whatever your goals.
