The curriculum at Foster Secondary College is designed to offer depth in student learning and meet the demands of breadth in choice as we prepare students for a life of education after they finish school. Students in Years 10 – 12 may access Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) subjects, Vocational Education & Training (VET) courses or enrol in the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) program. While there is some overlap in these different courses at post-compulsory stage of learning, the College has formed key partnerships through the VET cluster, the Bass Coast South Gippsland Local Learning & Employment Network (LLEN) and with neighboring schools to enhance delivery options for students. The school is also looking forward to the introduction of the South Gippsland Trade Training Centre for which it is the lead school. Foster Secondary College consistently enables students to reach their potential and has a very strong record in achieving tertiary placements in universities and TAFEs, apprenticeships and employment for later years students.
