Vocational Education & Training
VET is a compulsory part of the VCAL Intermediate and Senior levels. However, students are not required to focus on or complete any single VET certificate. For example, they may choose to undertake various units from a range of VET certificates. This would be an ideal option for a student who is undecided about which pathway best suits them.
School Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship
A School Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship (SBAT) can offer the opportunity to combine school with part-time employment and VET. It requires approximately two days a week consisting of both training and employment.
Generally, an employer is sourced by the student; however, the VCAL/VET coordinator or Careers coordinator can also assist in the process.
