SACE Subject Packages

SACE Subject Packages are packages of subjects designed to support students to complete SACE and commence a career pathway. The advantages of studying in this way include:

  • The learning and assessment in each subject supports the learning and assessment in the other subjects in the program
  • Working with the same group of students
  • Working with a small group of teachers who support student learning across all subjects in the program
  • Student learning is developed around their own strengths and interests

At Thebarton Senior College, we offer the following SACE Subject Packages (please click on the program name for more information):

Digital Media Program
The Digital Media Program encompasses a range of integrated subjects which promote the development of communication, media literacy and digital technology skills. Subjects within the program can be studied individually or as part of a package, giving students flexibility to engage with the content according to their own needs. The program prepares students to become critical, ethical and proficient users and creators of digital media for both professional and personal purposes.

Engineering and Construction Program
This program has been developed with input from industry partners to prepare students for the engineering and construction industries with both ATAR and apprenticeship/traineeship pathways.

Games for SACE Program
This course provides students with the opportunity to achieve all Stage 1 SACE compulsory requirements in literacy, numeracy and Exploring Identities and Futures through engaging with and studying video games. It is taught in an integrated way to connect learning and support essential skill and personal development.

Pathway to Policing
This SACE Stage 2 subject package has been developed in conjunction with SA Police, to provide a pathway to a career in policing. If you are interested in applying for a role as a police officer, police security officer or community constable with SA Police, then this package can help you to prepare for SA Police's eligibility criteria and recruitment process, by developing the skills and qualities needed for this rewarding career.

SACE Compulsories
This course is individualised to meet both the needs of the individual student and the requirements of the compulsory SACE subjects: English, Mathematics and Exploring Identities and Futures.

School-based Apprentice or Trainee (SBAT) Program
This is a flexible SACE Stage 1 and Stage 2 program for school-based apprentices or trainees, which supports both school requirements and employer's needs. The program provides flexible SACE subjects that enables students to complete SACE by attending school one day per week and be employed four days per week in their apprenticeship or traineeship. Students are able to transition into this program at any time during the year, once they have started an apprenticeship or traineeship.

Special Interest Academy
The Special Interest Academy enables students to complete their SACE and/or VET qualifications while pursuing their own passions, interests and commitments, be they entrepreneurial, dancing, sporting, music or performing arts.
