Subject Selection

Due to the success of the new Subject Selection process that was implemented in 2016, we will expand this process in 2017.

By July 2017, all students will be expected to complete a Careers Pathway Plan (via MIPs Online) to identify school and career goals. In July, all students in Years 7-11 will be given a Subject Selection book that outlines subjects, prerequisites and subject selection processes. All classes other than Year 12 classes will be cancelled on 10 August. Students in Years 7-11 will be asked to attend Subject Selection Day to discuss and sign off on their preferred selection of courses for 2018.

All students will meet with a teacher representative for their year level (generally a home group teacher or Year Level Coordinator). Students in Years 9, 10 and 11 will also meet with and have their form countersigned by a member of the Careers team, or a VCE, VCAL or VET leader.

As part of this process, Horsham College staff will also provide support for students and families about:

  • VCE and VCAL
  • Undertaking a VET program as part of VCE or VCAL
  • School-Based Apprenticeships
  • University prerequisites
  • Pathways into VCE subjects
  • Undertaking VCE subjects as part of a Yr 10 program
