Vocational Education and Training

VET refers to national vocational qualifications that are endorsed by industry. VET courses deliver industry endorsed units of competency from Nationally endorsed training packages which are recognised across Australia. Studying a VET program while still at school can:

  • Provide you with a head start in your chosen career
  • Make your senior school studies more relevant and interesting.
  • Enable you to work towards completing your SACE as well as gaining a training qualification.
  • Provide opportunities to learn “on the job” while undertaking work placement.

߲Ƶ is part of the Southern Adelaide and Fleurieu Secondary Schools Alliance (SAFSSA) consortium of schools in the Southern Adelaide, Fleurieu Peninsula and Kangaroo Island regions. Students access a range of vocational courses across the region hosted by local schools working with the local community and industry. At the same time, young people will be able to achieve their South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) while learning skills and working toward industry-accredited qualifications. They will be better prepared to take on apprenticeships and skilled jobs in areas that have identified skill shortages. Students also have access to VET for schools courses at TAFE and other Registered Training Organisations (RTO); these include short courses or Certificate I, II and III courses. The courses offered in the region cover a range of different occupational areas, for more information please refer to the current SAFSSA Course Brochure for your relevant course (link below).
