VET in Schools (VETIS)

Education Programs - VET

Vocational Education and Training in Schools are programmes undertaken by school students as part of the senior secondary certificate that provide credit towards a nationally recognised VET qualification within the Australian Qualifications Framework.

Funds are to be used to support the provision and expansion of nationally recognised VET for school students under the national training framework (the AQF) and approved by the NSW Board of Studies for inclusion in Higher School Certificate or School Certificate programs of study.

Priority in the use of funds should be given to:
  • Expanding VETIS Participation including Stage 5;
  • Ensuring Quality Delivery – teacher & resource development;
  • Expanding VET delivery;
  • Developing VET strategies for students;
  • Targeting skill areas of shortage and opportunity; and
  • Reviewing policies and processes.
