Vocational Education and Training (VET)

VET is hands-on education that directly relates to getting a job. This could be related to:

  • hospitality
  • sport and recreation
  • agriculture
  • music
  • retail 

VET is not a senior secondary certificate. Instead, your child can study VET units within VCE or VCAL. Some units give credit towards a nationally recognised VET certificate. Read more about VET in the VCE and VCAL.


Your child can also study VET subjects through:

  • pre-apprenticeship programs, these are stepping stone to start working in a certain industry
  • school-based apprenticeships and traineeships. These programs combine work, training and study at school. Your child is a student and employee at the same time
  • workplace learning programs. This can include work experience (observing people in a workplace) and structured workplace learning (learning the skills needed at the workplace)
