What is “Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETIS)”?

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 – 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.


Are you eligible?

Queensland high school students can undertake VETiS as part of their school studies, delivered by a school registered training organisation (RTO) or by enrolling in a course with an external RTO. Alternatively, students can undertake a qualification through a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship (SAT).


What will you gain from this program?

VETiS supports the delivery of nationally recognised qualifications to school students, providing them with the skills and knowledge required for specific industries.
