Vocational Education

VET at St Edmund’s College refers to Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses undertaken as part of school studies.

VET courses at St Edmund’s College enable you to earn credit towards a recognised VET qualification while you complete the general education curriculum or work towards your senior secondary certificate.

 

With VET at St Edmund’s College, you can:

  • combine a vocational pathway with your studies
  • complete (or work towards) a certificate I, II or III, or sometimes even a certificate IV qualification by continuing your education beyond school
  • keep your options open to pursue further vocational education (such as courses at a Technical and Further Education institute), or move into higher education (such as undertaking courses at university).

 

VET qualifications, or the credit towards a qualification, are recognised by industry across Australia under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).

  • providing students with an opportunity to get a great head start in their career.
