Vocational Education and Training

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is skill-based education and training that provides people with the workplace skills and technical knowledge they need to meet current and future employment demands. An integral part of the Australian tertiary education system, VET is designed to support economic, regional and community development.

VET offers stand alone qualifications as well as apprenticeships and traineeships that let you learn in the workplace while in paid employment. It leads to nationally recognised qualifications that range from Certificates I – IV to Diploma and Advanced Diploma that may be Integrated into your SACE program.

VET courses are available for some of the largest employment growth areas and for occupations reporting a shortage of labour.

In today’s competitive job market, it’s important to have the right technical skills and qualifications. Many employers all over Australia hold VET qualifications in high regard, recognising the significance of structured programs designed by Industry experts.

Please speak to Ms Stephenson in the Careers Centre for more information if you are keen to explore VET options.
