Courses for Early School Leavers


School is not for everyone. You might have a learning style that didn’t seem to quite fit with traditional learning. But it’s certainly not the end of the road – just the start of a new chapter.

Melbourne Polytechnic offers Early School Leaver options that might just fit the bill. From horticulture, building and construction through to information technology – we offer courses in many subject areas that are relevant to getting started in work.

Study in a subject you enjoy:

  • Agriculture
  • Building and construction
  • Hairdressing
  • Engineering
  • Science
  • Horticulture
  • Cookery
  • Information technology
  • Childcare studies

Choose one of our Certificate I to Certificate IV courses (including a number of pre-apprenticeships and apprenticeships) at most of our campuses. It’s easy getting here with public transport too, and our cafeteria offers a strong coffee. You will then have a pathway into Melbourne Polytechnic's Diploma or Advanced Diploma courses.

The Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) offers a range of courses including: Ticket to a Trade, Music, Hospitality, Animal Studies, Carpentry and other general VCAL programs.
