VET

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.

Year 10 Vocational Education and Training

Students in Year 10 can participate in short skills set courses to gain an understanding of different professional areas, while developing their skills and knowledge. Each Introductory course has been designed to allow the opportunity for students to enrol in a minimum of three (3) units of competency. Successful completion of units will carry credit points towards the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE). Further, introductory courses are intended to enable students to enrol into full VET qualifications (where applicable) in Senior College years.

 

Year 11 and 12 Vocational Education and Training

Senior College students can study nationally accredited VET courses as part of their Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE).

The Australian Qualifications Framework – volume of learning describes how long it would take to develop all the required skills and knowledge. Volume of learning includes all teaching, learning and assessment activities that a typical student must undertake to achieve the learning outcomes and suggests 600 hours is the required amount at a Certificate II level.

Throughout a school year, 150 hours is allocated for each subject and/or VET course. Certificate II level courses allow students the opportunity to meet required assessment outcomes, meet industry standards and develop confidence and competence. Importantly, most Certificate II level courses are offered over a two (2) year period to cater to the volume of learning requirements.

Work placement is a mandatory component of full qualifications (where applicable to RTO requirements); hours contribute to the overall volume of learning.

 

Australian School-based Apprenticeships (ASbA)

Earn and learn

Certificate III qualifications are often the basis for trade outcomes and undertaken as part of a traineeship or apprenticeship (Volume of learning 1200-2400 hours). In Year 11 and/or 12, students can combine paid part-time work with formal industry-based training while completing secondary schooling. An ASbA is a great combination to gain the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) and get a head-start in a career.

 

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 or wants further information about ASbA, we encourage them to talk to our VET Coordinator Miss Jen Reeves.
