Vocational Education and Training (VET)

VET partners with industry and government to provide people with workplace skills and technical knowledge to advance or change their careers, effectively offering a pathway to around 500 occupations.

With an emphasis on hands-on experience, courses concentrate on those occupational skills and competencies that employers increasingly demand.

Vocational Education and Training covers 8 of the 10 occupations predicted to have high jobs growth over the next few years. These include:

  • carers for children, the aged and disabled
  • software and application programmers
  • hospitality workers
  • advertising, public relations and sales

In addition to short courses, plus fee-free traineeships and apprenticeships, VET's qualifications range across Certificate I, II, III and IV, as well as Diploma courses and Advanced Diploma courses.
