Vocational Education and Training (VET)

  • Industry-specific workplace skills

Nationally recognised industry training

Completed as part of a senior school program, Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses focus on developing industry-specific and workplace skills designed to meet industry needs, and result in a nationally recognised vocational qualification.

A VET Certificate contributes towards the completion of a student’s senior secondary certificate, such as the VCE Vocational Major (VM) or the Vocational Pathways Certificate (VPC).

Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) is on-the-job training that allows VET students to develop their work skills and understand employer expectations. SWL is often a compulsory aspect of undertaking a VET program. This might involve students undertaking work placement one day a week for 5-10 days or as a block during term time.
