VETIS OVERVIEW


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. VET qualification carries directly into further education and training at a tertiary level – for example Certificate III in Music 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 work
  • VET programs contribute directly to the ATAR score, or as a fifth or sixth subject

VET increases students’ learning potential by:

  • Broadening VCE/VCAL options
  • Developing student capacity in decision making and problem solving
  • Matching student interest and career aspiration with strong educational pathways.

PARTNERSHIP WITH COLLARTS


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.

We offer two different education partnership options, one where we act as your RTO (necessary if your school or training organisation is not an RTO) and one where we are not your RTO but we supply all the resources you will need to teach a VET Music program. Contact us to find out more.
