Vocational Education & Training

All students enrolled in a VET course work towards a nationally recognised qualification.  A national qualification can assist in gaining entry to TAFE, other training and in certain cases University. This provides a head start in other national qualifications and/or improve employment prospects.  Successful students receive a Certificate/Statement of Attainment from the Training Provider and the Curriculum Council list these on their WACE. Students may select a qualification to complete within the school. Our own trainers are specially inducted to deliver these Certificates and are guided by a high level of compliance.

VET Delivered to Secondary Students (VETDSS)

Students who are accepted into VETDSS Course are introduced to an occupation or trade and work towards a qualification.  The courses are delivered by North Metropolitan TAFE, South Metropolitan TAFE and a number of private Registered Training Organisations (RTO) and are spread throughout the metropolitan area on different campuses. They cover a multitude of qualifications and areas.

School Based Traineeships

A school based traineeship allows senior secondary students to start a traineeship while also completing the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE).  Under these arrangements, the student is both a full time student and a part time employee with the same employment and training responsibilities as other trainees.

Aboriginal School Based Traineeships

The Aboriginal School Based Training is specifically aimed at Indigenous students to help get them started with an apprenticeship/traineeship while at school.  Apprentices/trainees are employed by a group training organisation which places them with a host employer.  They spend time in the workplace with their host employer and time with the training provider.
