Lavalla Catholic College offers a wide range of Vocational Education Training (VET) courses to students.
Year 10 students can choose from a large number of on campus options in the areas such as:
- Allied Health
- Building and Construction
- Creative & Digital Media,
- Laboratory Skills
- Sport and Recreation
At Year 11 there is a wide choice encompassing on campus delivery and off campus courses delivered by outside providers one day a week. VET certificates can form part of both VCE and VCAL study programs. The majority of VET courses are at a Certificate III level and classified as VCE/VET and attract a study score that can be included when calculating a student’s ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank). Selected VET subjects also form part of the Applied Learning VCAL program at Year 10.
What is VET?
VET is considered a subject which can be undertaken as part of either the VCE or VCAL certificates. VET provides credit towards a nationally recognised VET (TAFE level) qualification within the Australian Qualifications Framework. The training that students receive reflects specific industry competency standards.
Lavalla Catholic College has arrangements in place with a variety of Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s) to ensure we can offer a wide range of VET subjects to our students. The majority of VET subjects run over 2 years.
A key success of VET is the integration of vocational (occupation focused) options within the traditionally academic studies at the senior secondary school level. VET programs allow students to:
- Develop job industry specific skills
- Gain nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications and units of competency while still completing their VCE or VCAL
- Develop employability skills and an understanding of the world of work, and;
- Gain valuable experience to assist with planning and pursuing their career pathways.
