Our learning models & course delivery

We are committed to providing you with supported, varied study options that suit your needs.

Our courses are offered in a number of ways, including the interactive e-learning models and what was previously known as our blended learning model, with delivery modes that are responsive to our current learning environment.

Interactive e-learning models

The interactive e-learning models replace paper-based theory with a combination of face-to-face teaching and user-friendly e-learning tools that can be completed anytime, anywhere.

You will be:

  • guided through a range of interactive e-learning activities and resources, developed by professional learning designers in collaboration with Victoria University Polytechnic's educators, and;
  • further develop your skills on campus with practical workshops and work placements if required.

Our interactive e-learning environment keeps you connected with our teachers throughout your learning journey, with a range of support services and assistance available.

Experienced & award-winning

We have refined and adapted our innovative learning models for a number of years, and won awards for our e-learning modules, learning design team, and learning model development in 2021, 2020 and 2019.

VU Polytechnic's delivery modes

Vocational Education and Training (VET) continually adapt to technological advancements, industry demands and what is happening in the world around us. Our learning models and the way that courses are delivered have been developed for the future of VET.

Face to Face

Your classes, learning and assessment will be delivered with your teacher either on campus or in a virtual classroom.


Your classes, learning and assessment will be delivered solely online in either a virtual class, other online learning collaborations and/or independent eLearning. This could be in real-time or self-paced. Our Online courses have been designed in line with the VU Polytechnic online service standards.


Usually, your learning and assessment will be solely in the workplace. At times, you may also access classes, learning and assessment in the workplace, on-campus or in a virtual classroom and/or independent eLearning.
