Vocational Education and Training

Vocational Education and Training (VET) programs provide the opportunity for students to gain a nationally recognised qualification, along with workplace experience and skills, while at school. The VET system and the education system are distinct but complementary.


The VET sector is industry-driven, allowing industry to indicate the skills and knowledge needed and the qualifications are linked to job roles. VET is lined up to match industry skill requirements and skill shortage areas. Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a valuable option for students. It engages them in work-related learning that helps their transition into a broader range of post-school opportunities. This may be for university, further training and/or the workforce.


Delivery, assessment and the certification of VET qualifications are the responsibility of Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). All RTOs, and the qualifications and statements of attainment they certify, must meet the VET Quality Framework standards or the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) essential conditions and standards.


Students in Years 11 and 12 have the opportunity to access Vocational Education and Training courses within the College as an internal VETIS course. Or they can access external training courses with training providers in the region.
