Benefits of the VET Schools Program
Our courses work around students existing high school structure. The VET in Schools Program also counts towards a high school certificate. By taking on a nationally-accredited VET qualification during high school studies, you become equipped with job-ready skills that can lead to employment sooner or provide a pathway to university.
There is more than one way to achieve a university dream! Completing a VET qualification in school will enable you to move onto a certificate IV or diploma in your chosen field. Many Australian universities use these qualifications from the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) to qualify students for entry. Many students who didn’t pursue a purely academic path in year 12 use it as a stepping stone to university. Students may be eligible to receive credit towards your chosen degree from a VET qualification.
Making the right choice
The Schools Program presents an opportunity to explore a student's options before they graduate through:
The University Option
Studying a Certificate II or Certificate III qualification before you finish high school may make it easier to gain entry into university, and shorten the time it takes to complete a degree.
The Career Option
University isn’t for everyone — you may prefer to go straight into work. Building real-world skills while you’re still at school may make it easier to secure an entry-level position in the workforce.
The Foundation Education promise
Our Schools Program packages are specifically designed for growing minds, motivating students to work hard with engaging, interesting and dynamic subjects and learning outcomes.
Impart practical skills
Whether a student has their sights set on a certain career or not, our Schools Programs are an opportunity for them to experience a range of industries before making a decision. Our Schools Programs teach students invaluable skills directly connected to their chosen field, in a flexible and fun learning environment.
