Rosamond Special School

Post-compulsory

The Exits program is for students aged between 16 and 18.

Students in the post-compulsory years undertake the VCAL Foundation Certificate or, where more appropriate, a generalist program that provides students with the opportunity to participate in VCAL Work Skills, including a Structured Workplace Learning Placement and the VCAL Personal Development program as well as individual learning activities.

Within the post-compulsory program students are involved in a range of opportunities to build their academic capabilities and real life skills, with authentic learning as the focus. This includes opportunities for students to transfer the knowledge and skills they have developed at Rosamond into a community context.
