Vocational Education and Training (VET)

VET in Schools programs are designed to give students an awareness of the world of work, a broader range of skills and practical work-place experience. Through VET Programs students can make more informed choices about jobs and career pathways. Students can also build up valuable networks with TAFE providers and industry. VET can add qualifications and experience to a student’s resume, giving the competitive edge for entrance into the workforce or tertiary study.

Participation in a VET program is optional. Year 11 and 12 students who choose to do a VET program must undertake both the VCE as well as their chosen VET program. The duration of the program is for two years. This ensures that successful students graduate with both their VCE and VET in Schools credential, TAFE certificate, TAFE module or structured work placement. Students undertaking a VET course will attend a TAFE institute or work placement.
