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 and other training, give 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.

Profile Course

Students who are accepted in a Profile Course are introduced to an occupation or trade and work towards a qualification or part qualification.  The courses are delivered by North Metropolitan TAFE and South Metropolitan TAFE (formerly known as Polytechnic West and Central Institue of Technology) campuses and cover many occupations and trades. Most courses are of one year duration.

Pre-apprenticeship in School (PAiS)

PAiS is a 1-2 year training program  for students interested in an apprenticeship post school. It lets students “try a trade” to see if this industry area is where they want to work. Students are at school three days a week, one day in a workplace and one day at training.

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.

School Based Apprenticeships

Schools Based Apprenticeships allow students to start an apprenticeship while still at school.  The apprenticeship is on a part time basis and continues full or part time after the student leaves school.  Apprentices/trainees are employed by a group training organisation which places them with a host employer.  Students are paid for the time they are in the workplace and are usually three days at school, one day in the workplace and one day at training.

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.
