Vocational Education and Training

Trinity Christian School offers senior students a range of opportunities for practical, competency based training that helps prepare them for the workforce. The Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications are nationally recognised and can be completed in Year 10, 11 and 12. The qualifications can provide:

Important information about VET Certificates

All VET Certificates are competency based. They do not count towards an ATAR, but contribute points towards a student’s Year 12 Certificate. Excluding the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care, all VET Certificates at Trinity are delivered through the normal T or A course of study. Most Certificates will be attained after a full two year course of study. They incorporate Structured Workplace Learning, meaning that students are assessed in a relevant workplace outside of school hours.

If the full requirements of a Certificate are not met, students will be awarded a Statement of Attainment listing Units of Competence achieved according to Standards under subsection 185 (1) of the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011.
