Vocational Education & Training (VET)


Vocational Education and Training (VET) gives students skills and knowledge for work. VET operates through a national training system, and is delivered, assessed and certified by Registered Training Organisations (RTOs).

VET courses encourages students to complete and/or make significant progress towards completing, VET qualifications while completing their SACE.

VET is an excellent choice of study for many students. It always includes practical, hands-on learning, which suits many students, giving them a head start towards a rewarding future career.
