VET

 

What is VET?

VET stands for Vocational Education and Training (VET). Many young people now choose to study vocational educational and training courses while at school, with one in three students taking at least one VET course as part of their HSC each year. These are high quality, industry-recognised courses, which are generally delivered by schools and TAFE NSW. VET in schools helps young people explore areas of interest and develop skills for the 21st Century. It assists with career planning and gives students the necessary tools to transition successfully from school to the workforce or further study.

 

VET courses:

  • Are available to students in Years 11 &12
  • Taught by teachers at school, TAFE and PrivateTraining Providers
  • Provide a head start in a career
  • Include work placement
  • Provide pathways to further study

 

Albion Park High School's VET program is comprised of courses offered at school, TAFE and Private Training Providers. School based apprenticeships and traineeships that combine paid work, training and school are also being undertaken by APHS students.
