Vocational Education in Schools Applications
Every year the government funds several Vocational Education and Training courses that Year 11 and 12 students can apply for. Generally, students will spend one day a week at TAFE and four days a week at school. These courses are great for students on a General Pathway and have made some preliminary decisions in relation to desired post school destinations.
There are quite a range of course options on offer. All information has been shared with students via Seqta.

Applications are now open for North and South Metro TAFEs. You must apply online and then the College will be contacted and asked to endorse the students application.

Places in courses are not guaranteed so students are encouraged to apply for more than one training provider to cover all bases.
