Vocational Education and Training (VET) has become an important link for students making the transition from school to working life. Upon successful completion of a VET program, students are awarded a nationally-accredited vocational training certificate. A VET qualification carries directly into further education and training at a tertiary level – for example, Certificate III in Music Industry provides students with the foundation skills for a Diploma of Music.

VET prepares students for the workforce by:

  • Providing the opportunity to trial a career
  • Allowing the development of effective links with industry employers
  • Improving relevant skills for employment
  • Enhancing knowledge of employer expectations and real working conditions
  • Developing capacity for cooperation, teamwork and leadership
  • Assisting the transition from school to workforce
  • VET programs contribute directly to the ATAR score, or as a fifth or sixth subject

VET increases a student’s learning potential by:

  • Broadening their VCE/VCAL options
  • Developing their capacity in decision-making and problem-solving
  • Matching their interests and career aspirations with strong educational pathways

We have been working with schools across Australia for more than 20 years, providing high-quality Vocational Education Training (VET).

We are a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and work with schools and training organisations to deliver VET Music programs.

These VET Music programs are a great way for schools and training organisations to offer practical music learning for students.

The delivery of VET qualifications must be done through an RTO (Registered Training Organisation).

If your school isn’t an RTO, Collarts can assist in implementing programs through an auspicing arrangement where Collarts acts as your RTO, as well as providing support, training resources, professional development and student workshops.

If your school is already an RTO, Collarts can supply training resources, professional development and student workshops to support your VET Music programs. 

 Find out more by reading through the further information on this webpage, or contact us.

Effective teaching needs to be engaging, flexible, practical and enjoyable. Collarts’ online teaching and training platform provides online materials, which allow students to research and learn away from the classroom. This means more time in the classroom for face-to-face contact and interaction.

Collarts also supports teachers through a flexible suite of resources and assessment tools. Teachers decide how much content they use and can blend our resources with other training tools if desired.

Teaching resources include:

  • Course notes and guides
  • Student activities
  • A range of assessment tasks
  • Quizzes
  • Instructional learning videos
  • Guest presenter videos
  • Links to complementary resources

To arrange a demonstration or to trial the online resource, email our email our VET Compliance Manager.
