Year 10 Curriculum

Each student will be supported to actively perform ‘their best always’ in their chosen learning program and pathway to success as they transition to adulthood

Year 10 represents the start of Senior School within the secondary school curriculum. In years 11 and 12, students have a very broad range of choices to cater to their individual talents, needs, and future directions. It is in year 10, when students are given some choice to allow them to pursue areas of interest or in which they have a particular talent.

Of the areas of discipline-based learning in the Victorian Curriculum requirements, students study English, Mathematics, Humanities, and Science within their core.

Year 10 provides an excellent foundation for students to make an informed choice about their subjects in years 11 and 12 and their choice of program, the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL), or Apprenticeship/Traineeships.

For those students who may wish to transition into a VCAL program in years 11 and 12, we offer a Pathways program.

Students following a VCE Pathway

A great deal of careful preparation by staff from the Domain Areas has gone into the development of the Year 10 curriculum. While a study of core subjects is essential in laying the foundations of the student’s education, the Elective Program provides an opportunity to broaden this foundation in the areas of a student’s personal interest and/or ability.

Core Subjects

  • Pre-VCE English or English as an Additional Language
  • Mathematics: Pre-VCE Maths Methods; Pre-VCE General Maths; Foundation Maths
  • Industry and Enterprise Unit 1

The College offers a safe and supportive environment that caters to all students and where all students are safe and feel safe.

Through their voice and leadership, students are able to become active contributors to the whole school community.

Alternative Pathway

At Year 10, Noble Park Secondary College offers students an alternative program which focuses on preparatory workplace knowledge and employability skills alongside general Year 10 Core Subjects.

Students who are uncertain as to whether they should enrol in the (VCE) Victorian Certificate of Education or (VCAL) Victorian Certificate in Applied Learning are encouraged to consider enrolling in the Pathways Program.

The Year 10 Pathways program provides students with a course which is a combination of core subjects, such as English, Maths and Physical education, Arts/Technology, and alternative subjects. These include Personal Development Skills, work-ready program, and VET in Active Volunteering.
