VCE VET Information and Communications Technology

The VCE VET Information and Communications Technology program is drawn from a national training package and offers portable qualifications which are recognised throughout Australia. These qualifications provide students with a broad range of skills and knowledge to pursue a career or further training in various sectors of the information and communications technology industries.

Scored assessment is available for the Scored Units 3 and 4 sequence of the VCE VET Information and Communications Technology program.


For VCE VET program changes that have been approved for 2022 implementation, please see VCE VET program changes for 2022 and 2022 VCE VET program structures (Updated 25 January 2022). This document will be updated progressively as further programs are approved, and detailed changes will be published at a later date on the respective program pages.

Program material

The VCE VET Information and Communications Technology program booklet contains information relating to the qualifications approved by the VCAA for delivery to VCE or VCAL students.

It includes advice on the units of competency making up the program and the credit available for VCE and VCAL students.

It also provides advice on Structured Workplace Learning, the ATAR contribution and Pathways to further learning.

The 2022 VCE VET Information and Communications Technology Program Booklet will be available shortly. Please see the published 2022 VCE VET Program Structures.

The program booklet should be read in conjunction with the ICT Training Package.

Scored assessment

Scored assessment is available for ICT30120 Certificate III in Information and Communications Technology.

Students wishing to receive an ATAR contribution for VCE VET Information and Communications Technology must undertake scored assessment. This consists of three coursework tasks, worth 66% of the overall study score, and an end-of-year examination which is worth 34% of the overall study score.

Scored assessment is based on the Scored Units 3 and 4 sequence of VCE VET Information and Communications Technology.

The Scored Units 3 and 4 sequence of the VCE VET Information and Communications Technology program must be delivered and assessed in a single enrolment year.

Structured workplace learning recognition

The VCAA provides recognition for Structured Workplace Learning for students undertaking VCE VET programs.

Workplace Learning Record booklets for VCE VET Information and Communications Technology are currently under development.

ATAR contribution

Students wishing to receive an ATAR contribution for the VCE VET Information and Communications Technology program Units 3 and 4 sequence must undertake scored assessment for the purpose of achieving a study score. This study score can contribute directly to the ATAR, either as one of the student's best four studies (the primary four) or as a fifth or sixth study increment.

Where a student elects not to receive a study score no contribution to the ATAR will be available.

Where an additional Non-Scored VCE VET Units 3 and 4 sequence is undertaken students may be eligible for a fifth or sixth study increment.

The increment is awarded by the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC). Further information can be found on the VTAC website:

Where a VCE VET Program Scored Units 3 and 4 sequence is used as an increment, the increment will be calculated using 10% of the scaled score.

Increments for a VCE VET Program Non-Scored Units 3 and 4 sequence will be calculated using 10% of the fourth study score of the primary four.
