VETiS (Vocational Education and Training in Schools)
VETiS (Vocational Education and Training in Schools) programs are training programs with a particular job or vocational focus and are designed to lead to further education, training or direct entry into the workforce. VETiS contributes to both the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL – not offered at St Paul’s).
Students have the opportunity to enrol in a VETiS program and have it count towards their studies. VETiS programs consist of a set of work skills called Units of Competencies (UoCs) and students who successfully achieve competencies in a VETiS program receive a nationally recognised Certificate or Statement of Attainment.
VETiS programs enable students to complete a nationally recognised vocational qualification as well as it being part of their VCE program.
Students at St Paul’s can undertake a VETiS Certificate in Sport and Recreation and CISCO (delivered at school) or external VETiS (for example Media and Communication; Plumbing) to receive an early direct qualification for use within the industry.
