VET Q and A (Issue 5 2018)
Written on the 5 April 2018
Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a great choice for many students. VET includes classroom based and job related hands-on learning. VET enables students to gain skills and knowledge through nationally recognised industry-developed courses and allows students to gain their SACE while obtaining a VET qualification.
This term our VET Coordinator Leanne De Young sat down with Year 11 students, Aldo and Locrin, who have commenced a Certificate II in Engineering Production Technology at Rosewater Trade Training Centre (RTTC). This qualification takes two years to complete and can lead to further study in the areas of mechanical engineering, aeronautical engineering or mechatronics just to name a few! Employment pathways include apprenticeships and work in metal engineering, manufacturing, civil construction, mining and toolmaking.
