Vocational Education and Training

Another option for further study is Vocational Education and Training (VET).

What is VET?

VET operates through a national training system, particularly for the trades and other industries, and is certificated by Registered Training Organisations (RTO). Apprenticeships and traineeships are jobs that combine work and structured training through a VET provider and an employer.

It is essential that ongoing assessment of reading, writing, numeracy, communication and engagement continues throughout your VET enrolment.

Some courses will be available at the NESPN CLC, some at the local high schools and others at TAFESA and numerous RTOs.

You can use these VET courses to go towards your SACE; however, it is important to remember that you must achieve a C-Grade or higher in your SACE compulsory subjects to ensure successful SACE completion.

A young person should talk to the CLC Coordinator and their Case Manager before considering enrolling in a VET program.

Why study VET?

VET is an excellent choice of study for many students. It always includes practical, hands-on learning, which suits many students. It also leads to excellent jobs in a huge array of fields. Studying VET as part of the SACE give students a head-start on a qualification which is a great way to fast-track progress towards rewarding employment.
