VET in VCE or VCAL VET (Vocational Education & Training) programs are generally what people think of as TAFE courses or part time apprenticeships. Successful completion of a VET program provides : • Industry specific training leading to a nationally recognised Certificate from a TAFE (or private provider). • Insight into that industry & Work Placement opportunities • Part of VCE or VCAL VET in VCE VET can be part of VCE – each VET program counts as one VCE subject VET Programs are generally 2 year courses so students must start the VET course in Year 10 or Year 11. A Year 11 level certificate must be successfully completed before it can be undertaken at a Year 12 level. VET certificates can be included in the ENTER score.
