VET – Vocational Education & Training
Vocational Education and Training (VET) enables students to gain a nationally recognised VET qualification while they are at school completing VCE or VCAL. Undertaken at a Registered Training Organisation such as TAFE, VET can offer unique opportunities to improve a student’s skills, knowledge, employment opportunities, education pathway and financial outcomes.

VCAL – Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning
Students who wish to go to TAFE, get an apprenticeship or take on-the-job training when they leave school should consider completing a Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). VCAL is a hands-on option for students in Years 11 and 12 and provides practical work-related experience, literacy and numeracy skills and the opportunity to build personal skills that are important for life and work. Like the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), VCAL is an accredited secondary certificate. To read more visit: VCAL Info

It combines paid part time work, practical experience and training in the workplace which is usually timetabled 1-2 days per week. For more information visit: SBAT Info
