VETiS is designed to expand opportunities and pathways for senior secondary students (Years 10-12), and improve educational outcomes in line with the Victorian Government’s objective to increase the number of young people completing Year 12 or equivalent. VETiS also helps to address the skills and employment needs of industry in Victoria.
VETiS provides a vocationally oriented program of studies leading to a senior secondary certificate. VETiS programs are typically delivered through partnerships between schools, industry and Registered Training Organisations, and often include opportunities for students to participate in structured workplace learning.
VETiS programs are completed over one or two years and contribute to the completion of both VCE and VCAL.
Some VET subjects have scored assessments which mean they contribute to the ATAR score that VCE students gain on completion of Year 12.
Students enrolled in VETiS may also combine study and employment through School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships that allow students to do an apprenticeship or traineeship while they undertake their VCE or VCAL.
