VET at St Paul’s Catholic College

VET studied in schools gives students the opportunity to study a Vocational course while completing the Higher School Certificate (HSC). This allows school students to gain credentials from both NESA in terms of the HSC and from a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), in terms of a nationally recognised qualification. This means that you can receive dual accreditation for your course.

VET is different from other HSC courses as they

  • are based on national training packages designed to meet industry training needs
  • provide opportunities for practical work-based learning that will assist you in developing the knowledge and skills you need for work and further study
  • are written and assessed in competency based terms

VET consists of COMPETENCY based learning in Trade Orientated Courses.

VET courses allow students to gain valuable and transferable skills & experiences at Industry Standards.
