Vocational Education and Training (VET) is designed to deliver workplace-specific skills and knowledge and covers a wide range of careers and industries, including trade and office work, retail, hospitality and technology.
VET courses provide students with the basic knowledge and skills needed for entry-level jobs in a range of vocations and trades.
Certificates II and III are often prerequisites for higher level courses, such as diplomas, and often the units covered in these ‘foundation’ certificates can be credited towards further study.
VET can be studied as a stand-alone subject or incorporated into SACE subjects, such as Workplace Practices and Community Studies or a School-Based Apprenticeship.
