All About VET

VET stands for Vocational Education and Training.


Opportunities to do VET include Pre-Apprenticeships, School-Based Apprenticeships and School-Based Traineeships. VET engages students in work related learning built on strategic partnerships between schools, registered training organisations (RTOs), business, industry and the wider community.

Delivery arrangements of VET to secondary students may include:

  • Auspice* – where a school purchases quality assurance aspects from an RTO and the school delivers the training to their students
  • Fee for service – where a school purchases delivery and assessment from an RTO
  • Profile – where schools access profile hours through the TAFEs
  • RTO School – where a school becomes an RTO to deliver and assess training within a defined scope of delivery

*All delivery and assessment of VET must be conducted or supervised by a qualified trainer and assessor in partnership with a registered training organisation which operates under a VET regulatory and quality framework.
