What is Vocational Education and Training? (VET)
VET in Schools programs provide the opportunity for your son or daughter to gain a nationally recognised qualification along with workplace experience and skills, while at school. Programs are usually offered in Years 10, 11 and 12 and qualifications are available from a range of industries. The VET system and the education system are distinct but complimentary. The VET sector is industry driven allowing industry to indicate the skills and knowledge needed and the qualifications are linked to job roles. VET is lined up to identify industry skill requirements and skill shortage areas.
