Vocational education and training (VET) provides students with the opportunity to acquire workplace skills and knowledge through nationally recognised qualifications from industry-developed training packages or accredited courses while still at school. Once a student is assessed as competent against the nationally agreed standards required to perform effectively in the workplace they are awarded a full or partial VET qualification issued by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

It’s important to note the VET delivered to secondary students is nationally recognised, is the same as VET delivered in non-school settings, and held to same quality standards.
