Leadership, organisational and specialist activity skills will be developed through the units of competency undertaken in the selected program.

Where a student elects not to receive a study score no contribution to the ATAR will be available.
The increment is awarded by the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC). Further information can be found on the VTAC website:
