Preparing for VCE in 2021

After the trials and tribulations of 2020, we want to support incoming Year 12 students and help them get a head start on their VCE Unit 3 English studies. Available from mid-November 2020, these pre-recorded online lectures will feature experienced teachers and assessors speaking directly to students about the skills and habits that will help them succeed in the following year. There are two lectures available for each VCE English study. Find out more here
