Vocational Education and Training
The Vocational Education and Training (VET) program lets students take their VCE and a VET Certificate at the same time. VET programs provide for a combination of vocational and general education.
The VET certificate is a level two award in the Australian Qualification Framework and is recognised nationally. Students are eligible to apply for an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) and are also granted credit towards other VET certificate and Diploma courses.
St Helena belongs to the Northern VET Cluster which provides access to a broader range of VET courses.
