Learning for life.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is an important part of many students’ senior secondary education. Subjects can be completed as the VCE pathway, Vocational Major pathway, or the Victorian Pathways Certificate. VET subjects develop industry specific knowledge and skills, as well as general skills needed for employment, training, and further education. The dynamic VET teachers pride themselves on providing practical skills relevant to a variety of student talents, and helps our young men work towards a formal VET certificate.

What is VET?

Vocational Education and Training (VET) allows students an opportunity to complete a nationally recognised qualification in Certificate I, II or III, in a range of areas.

What are the advantages of VET?

VET subjects give students the opportunity to gain work ready skills, while also offering credit towards an apprenticeship or pre apprenticeship course. As a result, students increase their awareness of vocational training and where it may lead in a future career. If completing a VET subject, students can still apply for entry to university courses, TAFE courses, training programs or seek to join the work force. Depending on the certificate, a VET subject could be counted among your best four subjects or as a fifth or sixth subject when calculating the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank.
