CAREERS & VOCATIONAL EDUCATION TRAINING (VET)

In today’s global society there are many career choices.  At St Scholastica's we prepare our students to make informed and realistic decisions about their future and offer access to a range of Vocational Education courses.  Each course delivers different advantages to the student.

 

VET courses play a very useful role in helping students to make decisions about further education, training and employment. Students who are interested in studying in a vocational subject may elect to study courses delivered by TAFE NSW.  These courses are typically offered at Sydney Institute of TAFE campuses and involve the students being placed in cluster classes with students from other high schools. TAFE delivered VET (EVET) is offered in a wide range of vocational subject areas and is targeted at students who are seeking a vocational education path. Students who wish to pursue a EVET course will be required to pay the cost of the course.  Students receive recognition towards their school qualification (Record of School Achievement or HSC), as well as a nationally recognised VET qualification (Certificate or Statement of Attainment).
