What are these occupations?

It's an 1851 Census for Scotland

Teacher of English branches? what would that mean?
Teacher of Sewing or Serving (she was a straw hat maker in 1851 and a milliner in 1881 so I favour Sewing. But what does Vc mean?

(The Winder written at the top refers to another person who has been squeezed into the return)

Hi
The "English branches" of education? May well go beyond the 3 R's, but not include, for example, classics. At a guess!
Vc could be &c - et cetera.
