Vocational education

Year 10, 11 and 12 students are able to begin studying a Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses as part of their school program. These programs are called 'Vocational Education and Training in Schools' (VETiS) programs. Many of these courses are delivered one day per week at a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
This is an excellent pathway for students who:
·       do not wish to go directly to University after Year 12.
·       wish to start a VET certificate/diploma that directly links to university entrance.
·       are wanting to build up skills before entering an apprenticeship or traineeship
·       have a passion to begin studying in an area not offered at school.
All VET courses will contribute credits towards the students Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). Students who nominate to study a VETiS program must be mature enough to be able to work within the RTO environment and have a strong desire to succeed. All students who study a VETiS course will have their timetable reduced to accommodate the extra study demands.
