The VCAL has four curriculum areas, called strands. These strands are:
- Literacy and numeracy skills
- Industry specific skills
- Work related skills
- Personal development skills.
VCAL units are designed to meet the purpose of the strand to which they contribute credit to. Each VCAL unit contains accredited learning outcomes that must be satisfactorily completed in order to meet the requirements of that unit. Each VCAL unit is 100 nominal hours in length. The satisfactory completion of each unit contributes one credit towards the VCAL at the appropriate award level.
