Vocational Education and Training (VET)

Vocational Education and Training (VET) in schools provides opportunities for students in Years 10-12 to develop an understanding of the workforce, undertake training in specific industry skills and gain credit towards a nationally recognised qualification such as a certificate, diploma or advanced diploma while undertaking the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).

Undertaking a VET course while still at school can:

  • Provide you with a head start in your chosen career
  • Make your senior school studies more relevant and interesting
  • Enable you to work towards completing your SACE as well as gaining a training qualification
  • Enable you to combine your school studies with part-time or casual employment
  • Provide opportunities to learn “on the job” while undertaking work placement
  • It may also improve admission scores for students planning further study with a University or other training provider.
