The plan aims to prepare students for SACE studies by helping them to plan a learning program which will enable access to a range of post school options.

The PLP at Roma Mitchell Secondary College is usually completed in year 10 to assist with decision making about SACE subject choices and to demonstrate a student’s preparedness for senior school.

It is a compulsory component of the SACE and students must achieve a C grade or better to complete the SACE certificate.
