Vocational Education & Training

Vocational Education and Training (V.E.T.) courses are either Board Developed courses, which may contribute to the calculation of an ATAR, or Board endorsed courses.

VET courses give students work-related skills in a variety of industry areas. Students will receive a nationally recognised qualification when they complete their course.

Some VET courses are studied at school while others can be studied at TAFE institutes and other training providers. Many VET courses involve work placement.

Board developed VET courses are available in a number of industry curriculum frameworks, such as hospitality, metals engineering and construction. Only ONE of these Category B subjects can be used in the calculations of an ATAR.

Please click on V.E.T. for further information.
