VET 2023

Any students thinking about undertaking VET studies in 2023 should make an appointment to discuss their plans as soon as possible, especially for funded VET courses. Ideally students could undertake exploratory VET in the form of a Try a Trade, Work Experience or a VET Immersion experience whilst in Year 10 then apply for VET whilst in Year 11. For more information regarding VET at the College go to Career Tools VET page to read about how VET can fit into the SACE.

VETRO cut-off is October 28, but courses will fill up fast! Get you paperwork in week 1.

Virtual Work Experience

The Careers Department and Career Tools websites.

If you’ve got some spare time on your hands these holidays, why not spend some time accessing some of the exciting resources found on the websites The Careers Department and Career Tools.

The Careers Department are even running a National Virtual Work Experience Competition! You can win cool prizes and learn about different careers! Entries close December 10.

There will be one semi-finalist from every state and territory (8 winners), who will each win a $600 Apple voucher. A 'national winner' (chosen from the 8 semi finalists) will also win a week's face-to-face work experience at the Seven Network and an additional $1,400 Apple voucher.

(The total prize pool for the national winner is a $2000 Apple voucher and all interstate costs associated with work experience travel). T&Cs apply.

Students have already set up an account for both of these websites. These activities range from 2 hours to 10 hours, so plan your time carefully! At the end of each activity, submit your work to the portal and you will receive a certificate of completion stating your work experience hours.
