Vocational Ed & Training

Leader of Learning VET - Mr Simon Ramage

The Vocational Education Technology (VET) curriculum provides students with an understanding of a wide range of industries. This provides students with an appreciation of industries which could provide potential career pathways. VET courses are competency based courses and student achievement is measured by being deemed either competent in a skill or working towards competency in the nominated area. A critical aspect of all VET courses is a deep understanding of Work Health and Safety requirements.

To support the authenticity of study in a VET course, each student has to complete 70-hours of Work Placement for each course being studied.

Students in Years 11 and 12 have the opportunity to study:

  • Business Services
  • Construction
  • Electrotechnology
