*Christian Education
Our non-denominational Christian Education Program is centred on the teachings and character of Jesus Christ. It allows students to explore their spirituality while developing personal integrity, ethical awareness, and life skills. The program instills Christian values, morals, ethics, and beliefs, promoting respect for people of different backgrounds, social statuses,races, or cultures. Led by the Christian
Education Coordinator, the program covers Years 7 to 12 and takes place once a week as part of the curriculum.

Kennedy Baptist College offers a wide variety of courses and electives to students in Years 11 and 12. All Year 11 and 12 students will complete a program of study made up of Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) courses, Vocational Education and Training (VET) packages and/or endorsed programs.

There are two groups of WACE courses: ATAR courses for students who are typically aiming to enrol in University directly from school, and General courses for students who are typically aiming to enter further training or the workforce directly from school.

What is Vocational Education and Training (VET)?

VET in Schools programs provide the opportunity for students to gain a nationally recognised qualification along with workplace experience and skills, while at school. Programs are usually offered in Years 10, 11 and 12 and qualifications are available from a range of industries.

The VET system and the education system are distinct but complementary. The VET sector is industry-driven, allowing the industry to indicate the skills and knowledge needed and the qualifications are linked to job roles. VET is lined up to identify industry skill requirements and skill shortage areas.
