Vocational Education and Training (VET)

Vocational Education and Training (VET) in secondary schools is critical to ensuring students are equipped with the skills that meet the needs of our future workforce.

Schools have always prepared students for work, but bringing schools and employers together through quality vocational learning and VET programs can help school graduates meet the higher demands of the workplace and a globally competitive environment.

VET provides students with opportunity to acquire workplace skills and knowledge through nationally recognised qualifications from industry-developed training packages or accredited courses while still at school.

Once a student is assessed as competent against the nationally agreed standards required to perform effectively in the workplace they are awarded a full or partial VET qualification issued by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

It is important to note the VET Delivered to Secondary Students (VETDSS) is nationally recognised and is the same as VET delivered in non-school settings, and should be held to the same quality standards.
