Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS)

What is ‚ÄúVocational Education and Training in Schools (VETIS)‚ÄĚ?

Vocational education and training (VET) courses are available to students while they are still at school. This is often referred to as VETiS.

VET is learning which is directly related to work. Nationally recognised qualifications are developed by industry to give people the knowledge and skills they need to work in a particular job.

You can undertake VET at school:

  • as part of your school studies ‚Äď delivered and resourced by a school registered training organisation
  • by enrolling in a qualification with an external Training
  • as a school-based apprentice or trainee.

Talk to your guidance officer, career counsellor, vocational education coordinator or head of senior schooling about the qualification that is right for you from the range of programs available at your school.
