Vocational Education and Training
For some students, the opportunity to complete Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses as a part of their senior studies, provides them with a greater engagement in a chosen field and can set them up for their chosen pathway before leaving school. In fact, some students have completed Year 12 with their SACE, completion of Certificate 3 in aged care, secured employment in aged care and acceptance to study nursing at University. The VET program is very flexible and can be tailored to the specific learning needs and interests of individual students. Courses offer opportunities for students to participate in vocational training outside the school environment and may be held during or out of school hours. All VET courses are nationally accredited and provide an alternative method of study for SACE accreditation. Students may choose a VET pathway to continue after completion of schooling, whilst others undertake VET as a means of experiencing a particular industry prior to making further study decisions for the future. A vast array of course options are available such as nursing, community services, graphic design, makeup and skincare, hairdressing, hospitality, interior design, event management, and children's services.
