Bendigo Senior Secondary College is proud to have led the establishment of the Victorian Virtual Learning Network over the last five years. Our vision has been to create a truly world class online learning environment to provide students with access to a broader range of VCE subjects. Our VVLN students have access to a high quality online course supported by a dedicated online teacher. Results show that students can achieve great success under this model of learning and the testimonials of students and other schools speak for themselves. Join us in 2018!

Tom Bennett and Janelle Spinks The online learning process has been efficient and easy to follow, helping us remain on-task throughout the year. Paired with a supportive teacher who is always eager and ready to help, VVLN has promoted independence and education in a comfortable and encouraging environment.

Porter Mattinson Through the VVLN I have been studying Specialist Maths 1-2 after there was a timetable clash. I am an independent learner, and the VVLN structure has allowed me to work through their exemplary course at my own pace. At no point have I found working with the VVLN to be a detriment to my ability to understand the curriculum.

Harper Dawson I study Mathematical Methods through the VVLN and find it allows me to be flexible in my learning and has taught me to be a much more independent learner. The VVLN teaches students to be motivated and willing to learn in order to keep on top of the work. Despite not being in a traditional classroom setting and always with a teacher, I do not feel alone in my learning. The work I submit is promptly corrected, sent back with feedback and next steps for me and help is provided when I need it.

Georgia Gardner Learning with VVLN has been one of the best experiences for me. It has allowed me to do courses that I wouldn’t have been able to do at my home school. I love the layout and organisation of the website and course itself. I always know what I’ve learnt and will be learning next. I actually prefer it to normal classes in some ways as the it gives me the flexibility to choose when I am doing my lessons and I can go back on exactly the videos I’ve done previously if I forget or don’t fully understand something. Taking Specialist Maths through the VVLN has opened up a new range of paths for me after school, and has given me a very high standard of knowledge that I will need for my exams. It is an excellent program that I would highly recommend to anyone.

Shannon Thoonen When thinking of studying via correspondence, you would normally think of an impersonal learning environment where you’re all alone. While the VVLN does encourage independence, the learning feels anything but lonely – constant support from your online teacher and thorough video lessons give you what could be a more personal learning experience and relationship with your teacher than even normal schooling. It is a very unique way to study.

Advice for future VVLN students



MATTHEW ALLENStudying both Specialist and Math Methods through the VVLN has been great experience. The videos are highly informative and doing these classes through the VVLN has provided me with the opportunity to study what I want and has aided me in becoming a more independent learner.

VVLN provides students with the opportunity to study VCE units in a supportive online learning environment. The program runs efficiently from enrolment to delivery and the VVLN teachers are very helpful and make themselves available to assist with any queries. The students receive all the support and guidance they need to successfully complete their studies. I would definitely recommend VVLN as an excellent option to traditional study.

We have been very happy with the service provided by the VVLN. The program has enabled our students to access VCE subjects that we have been unable to offer. The standout feature of the program is the quality of the teaching. The teachers have at all times been accessible, organised and friendly in their dealings with our students. The online learning materials are of the highest possible quality and they allow students to go back over their learning at a pace that suits the individual.

During the last two years many of our students achieved outstanding results by incorporating one and sometimes two VVLN subjects into creating their preferred VCE program whilst continuing to learn in their preferred school environment here at Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College.

Our students and I have established an excellent rapport with the experienced, caring and specialist VVLN staff who understand the demands of VCE study and the nature of a busy school environment. The VVLN staff members are accessed easily and always ensure we have the materials and detailed instructions required well in advance of assessments, practical classes and due dates for course work.

The strong partnership developed between our College and the VVLN provides the opportunity for our students with a variety needs to access the high quality education they desire.

EmmaI enjoy learning with the VVLN because it allows flexibility when learning rather than going to a classroom at a specific time. I can watch the videos at anytime I want to make sure I meet due dates and stay vaguely on track. I study Physics and Specialist Mathematics with the VVLN so being able to study either subject whenever has been an advantage. Many of the times for classes cross over with friends that I can then work with, even though they’re not doing the same classes.

HAYLEY WALKERThe VVLN gave me the opportunity to pursue my Maths Methods 1-2 course after having a timetable clash with another subject. The one-on-one learning experience that the VVLN provides with the support from a teacher, allowed me to study independently. This helped me improve my overall organisational and communication skills.

I enjoy using VVLN because it is easy to understand and learn how to use. The VVLN website provides great opportunities for everyone, and with supportive staff that are always willing to answer any questions and guide you through the learning process.
