The VCE Student Policy Handbook provides helpful advice for Northside Christian College Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) students and parents. It will provide you with invaluable information as you proceed through the VCE. This handbook provides policies related to the VCE; make sure you read them carefully. Keep this document on hand and in a safe place as you will need to refer to it throughout the year. Parents and students are required to read this document and complete the Parent and Student Declaration Form at the commencement of each academic year. These policies outline the requirements that students must adhere to in order for the VCE to be awarded. Further clarification and explanation is available on the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) website or by appointment with the VCE Learning Coordinator.
The VCAL Policy Handbook provides information for VCAL students and their parents. It covers Senior School policies and important information about VCAL studies at Northside Christian College. VCAL students are encouraged to read this document in conjunction with the VCE Policy Handbook and the Subject Selection Handbook. VCAL is administered by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA). Further clarification and explanation is available on the VCAA website or by appointment with the VCAL Coordinator.
The VCE Subject Selection Handbook plays one part in the process of bringing students to a position in which informed decisions can be made about subject selection. Students and parents are urged to take full advantage of the opportunities offered for information and career and subject counselling. It is hoped that by the end of Term 3, students will have selected their subjects for the following academic school year.
The College has an Academic Integrity policy that set outs requirements to ensure the authenticity and academic integrity of work submitted for assessment. During the year, students will be asked to submit assignments, presentations, and research assignments which adhere to these guidelines.
The College uses a range of ways to check on the authenticity of students' work and will take action if plagiarism is found in internally assessed work.
