Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses may be either Board Developed or Board Endorsed . They enable students to study courses that are relevant to industry needs and have clear links to post-school destinations.
These courses allow students to gain both Higher School Certificate qualifications and accreditation with industry and the workplace, as part of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). The national framework is recognised across Australia and helps students to move easily between the various education and training sectors and employment.
These courses each have a specific workplace component and a minimum number of hours students spend in the workplace. Students receive special documentation showing the competencies gained. Some of these courses will be delivered by schools, while others will be delivered by TAFE or other providers.
Students may sit the optional examination in the Board Developed course for the calculation of the ATAR, however only one 240-hour course in any framework can contribute towards the ATAR.
VET courses currently offered by Goulburn High School include:
