What is VET?

VET is also referred to as "VETis", which stands for "Vocational Education and Training in Schools". VET refers to enhanced senior school studies, which enables a secondary student to combine their SENIOR SCHOOL studies with vocational training.

Vocational education and training (VET) is 'education and training for work' and part of a broader educational network in Australia that includes schools, universities and adult and community education. For detail on the national VET system, visit www.training.com.au.

How Does VET Work?

A VET in Schools program is usually made up of:

VET units of competency: Delivered by a registered training organisation (e.g. TAFE), student’s school or another school close by.

Structured Workplace Learning: This involves an employer accepting a student on a one day a week basis or one week block.

Structured workplace learning enables the student to demonstrate acquired skills and knowledge in an industry setting. During the work placement, a student will have specific tasks to undertake in order to demonstrate competence. They will be regularly monitored and may be assessed on the job.
