VET Virtual Open Day
Up until 2020 Year 9 students were taken on a tour of facilities at local training organisations including TAFE Gippsland and Community College in Leongatha and AGA Apprenticeships Group Plus in Korumburra.
In 2020 we instead visited Schools to showcase to students the range of local VET courses on offer, provide program information and to outline what it might be like to attend a VET course.
Plans are currently underway for the 2021 event.
Below are the videos and materials presented in 2020.

What is VET?
Vocational Education and Training (VET) can give you workplace skills and knowledge for a career you are passionate about.
Every year more than 50,000 secondary students across Victoria explore their passion through VET.
This is what you get from doing VET in VCE or VCAL
- A nationally recognised qualification
- Skills and training for a specific job or industry
- Experience in the workplace
- Can contribute towards VCE, VET and ATAR Scores
- Pathway to TAFE, University, apprenticeship, traineeship, employment
Vocational Education and Training (VET) is an important component of Victoria’s senior secondary qualifications, the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL).
Most students start VET in Year 10 or 11 as part of their VCE or VCAL. VET allows students to explore careers, gain workplace training, receive a credit towards VCE or VCAL and gain a nationally recognised qualification. With pathways to over 500 careers in a diverse range of industries, VET can lead you to an apprenticeship or traineeship, TAFE, University or employment.
