VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING IN SCHOOLS (VETiS)
Some students undertake nationally recognised vocational education and training (VET) qualifications while they are still at school. VET is learning which is directly related to work. Nationally recognised qualifications are developed by industry to give people the knowledge and skills they need to work in a particular job.
STUDENTS CAN UNDERTAKE VET AT SCHOOL:
- as part of their school studies – delivered and resourced by a school registered training organisation (RTO)
- by enrolling in a qualification with an external RTO – funded either by the Queensland Department of Employment, Small Business and Training’s VET investment budget or through fee-for-service arrangements i.e. where the student or parent pays for the qualification
- as a school-based apprentice or trainee.
VETiS funding by the VET investment budget
VETiS qualifications funded by the VET investment budget are delivered by RTOs who have been approved by the Queensland Department of Employment, Small Business and Training as pre-qualified suppliers (PQS) under the Certificate 3 Guarantee. Schools, in consultation with students and their parents, are able to choose any PQS for the eligible qualification.
VETiS qualifications on the Queensland Training Subsidies List are at the certificate I and II level. Students who wish to access the VET investment budget to undertake a Certificate III qualification should do so as a school-based apprentice or trainee (SAT).
