Vocational Education and Training (VET) Program
VET qualifications are for students wishing to participate in nationally recognised training; they are governed by the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) and do not contribute to direct university entrance eligibility. All VET qualifications require Registered Training Organisation (RTO) delivery, assessment and quality control under the relevant VET regulatory body. A Certificate II or higher is one of the range of requirements for achieving a WACE. These qualifications contribute to the WACE as unit equivalents.
Successful completion of these courses is an advantage for students who are aiming to apply for further training pathways (eg State or private training providers) and may be an advantage for students applying for alternative entry pathways to university (eg portfolio entry to Edith Cowan University). For information on alternative pathways to university, please contact individual universities directly.
For more information regarding the VET program please refer to the Curriculum Handbook or contact the VET office at Butler College.
