VET stands for Vocational Education and Training. VET subjects are part of the VCE and VCAL but are more practical studies. Theory is put into practice, providing students with the opportunity to develop work skills and knowledge that relate to real jobs in industry.
By undertaking a VET subject, students:
- Apply what is learnt in class with the opportunity of practical work placements
- Gain a nationally recognised VET qualification
- Gain confidence and develop communication and employment skills
- Gain industry experience and enhance career opportunities
- Gain credit towards the calculation of their ATAR score (when a two year program is studied)
What can I study?
The range of VET options is extensive with recognised training packages available from industries including automotive, engineering, building and construction, hospitality and retail, agriculture, horticulture, warehousing and hair and beauty.
When and where do I study VET?
Apart from Sport & Recreation, all VET subjects involve students travelling away from Norwood to either a neighbouring school or to a TAFE provider. VET subjects are taught in a weekly three to four hour block, which is factored into the Norwood timetable.
