Students who want to go on to study at TAFE to learn a trade, craft or technical skills can take Vocational Education and Training (VET) units at the Marist Regional College.
These units give the students nationally-accredited skills and practical skills to prepare for work. They get a head start on TAFE training, within the safe and supportive school setting.
Students who enrol in a VET program:
- spend time in a simulated work environment
- develop employability skills common to all industry areas
- achieve specific skills and knowledge for the industry area of their choice
- gain nationally accredited qualifications that assist in future training and pathways
- establish strong partnerships and networks within the local employment environment.

Students in Year 10 can participate in an Introduction to Hospitality course that focuses on hygiene, safety and Barista areas. This will enable students to fast track their course selection in Senior College for Certificate II in Hospitality.
Short courses are also available for Senior College students, which include Responsible Service of Alcohol, White Card training and First Aid.
Australian School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships are popular choices for students pursuing a trade, or entry into the workforce while studying at the College.
Our College aims to help match student interests to courses, even if they are offered off-site or online.
If a student is interested in enrolling in any VET course, we encourage them to talk to our VET Coordinator Miss Jen Reeves.
