Vocational Education and Training

What Is VET And How Can I Do It?

VET stands for Vocational Education and Training. VET is education and training that gives students skills for work, particularly in the trades and industry. It is the kind of education offered by TAFE colleges and a range of other registered training organisations.

In the SACE students will be able to study more VET than ever before. They can earn up to 150 of the 200 credits required to complete the SACE, through recognised Vocational Education and Training courses. The remaining 50 credits can be completed through subjects with a VET focus. This means the 200 SACE credits required to complete the certificate can be gained through a VET focus, provided the Personal Learning Plan, Research Project and the Stage 1 literacy and numeracy requirements are also satisfied.

The new VET procedures will encourage students to plan their VET pathways and work towards higher levels of VET.

Access To VET Pathways

Students at Kapunda High School can access VET programs organised by our local Trade School or dealing directly with a RTO (Registered Training Office) for example, TAFE SA.

Historically students have undertaken VET modules in Automotive, Hair and Beauty, Animal Studies, Childcare, Agriculture and Tourism.

Costs of VET modules are a shared parent/caregiver and school responsibility. The school makes an ‘up-front’ contribution and then pays an incentive reward on receipt of student results.

More information can be accessed by contacting the KHS Flexible Pathways Coordinator.
