All about VET

VET stands for Vocational Education and Training.

Opportunities to do VET include Pre-apprenticeships, School Based Apprenticeships and School based Traineeships. VET engages students in work related learning built on strategic partnerships between schools, training organisations, business, industry and the wider community.

There are three ways that VET can contribute towards the WACE

VET industry specific courses are WACE courses where a full nationally recognised qualification is delivered and assessed according to industry specific standards with mandatory workplace learning included. Achievement of these qualifications will count towards the WACE as Authority course units.

VET integrated in courses involves students undertaking one or more VET units of competency concurrently with a WACE course unit.

VET credit transfer  is where students are enrolled in VET units of competency that are delivered independently of a WACE course. Achievement of VET units of competency will count towards WACE completion as unit equivalents.

VET Information for all schools provides information about the Authority's VET database.

VETinfoNet  http://www.vetinfonet.det.wa.edu.au/home/ provides information about all aspects of Vocational Education and Training in Western Australia.

The Reports on Vocational Education and Training in Senior Secondary Education Western Australia are available to read in the Publications and Reports section.
