Vocational Education and Training (VET)
Vocational education and training is learning that relates directly to work. Courses are developed by industry to give people the knowledge and skills they need to work in a particular job.
Students can undertake vocational education and training at school:
- as part of their school studies
- as a school-based apprentice or trainee.
Courses offered at St Clare’s
Construction, Hospitality and Sport Coaching
Other courses can be studied through the TAFE TVET program.
