Curricular - Vocational Education and Training

What is a Vocational Education and Training (VET) course?

VET courses allow school students to gain credentials from both the NESA in terms of the HSC, and from an RTO, in terms of a nationally recognised credential while completing the HSC. Students must therefore be assessed under conditions satisfying both NESA and the RTO, which in our College’s case is the Association of Independent Schools.

The nationally recognised qualification varies from course to course, in some areas it may be Certificate I, most common is Certificate II or statement of attainment towards Certificates II or III. Students gain skills at an entry level in competencies that are specific and relevant to the industry area they are studying. This is achieved through both practical and theory work completed at the College as well as through structured work placement of one week each year.

At the College students can enroll in the VET framework course Construction – Certificate II Construction Pathways.

Students complete the course with not only two credentials but also with work readiness skills and attitudes that make them better prepared for, and more likely to gain employment.
