VETiS COURSES – Funded by the Government

Students only allowed one VETiS subject to be studied in Years 11 and 12.


External certificate courses

Senior students may enrol in Certificate III, or IV level programs at various Institutes of TAFE or other providers. There are 1 and 2 year courses which start at the beginning of Year 11—with some 1 year courses available in Year 12. The student's timetable may be adjusted to 5 subjects to help them complete their study obligations.

Students who are interested in certificate training need to:

  • contact the Year 11 and 12 SPEC HOD
  • commit to completing the program
  • pay all course costs directly to the training organisation
  • arrange their own transport to and from the external training organisation.

More information:

Work experience

Work experience is available for students in Years 11 as a one-week block at the end of either Term 2 or Term 3. It allows students:

  • The opportunity to gain  regular paid casual work
  • explore their career options
  • the opportunity to experience the world of work.

Information about work experience opportunities are communicated to students through school assemblies. It is an advantage if parents and students are able to provide possible work placements.

For additional information contact:

Senior Schooling team for more information.
