VET in Schools (VETiS)
What is VETiS?
Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) is a program that provides students with access to vocational training and qualifications while still attending school. The program is available to all Queensland secondary school students in Years 10, 11, and 12, including those who are home-schooled, and allows them to participate in certificate-level training that aligns with their interests and career aspirations.
VETiS courses are designed to provide students with a pathway to further study, apprenticeships, traineeships, or employment after completing school. The program also provides opportunities for students to gain practical, hands-on experience in their chosen field, helping them develop the skills and knowledge required for the workplace.
VETiS is funded through the Queensland Government’s Department of Employment, Small Business, and Training, which provides funding to schools and registered training organisations (RTOs) to deliver vocational education and training to students. Funding is available for RTOs to deliver VETiS courses to students, and for schools to employ teachers who have the qualifications and experience to deliver these courses.
To participate in the VETiS program, students must meet certain eligibility criteria, including being enrolled in a Queensland secondary school in Years 10, 11, or 12, and having the support of their school and parent or guardian. Students must also have the necessary literacy and numeracy skills required for the course they wish to undertake.
Overall, the VETiS program provides an opportunity for students to gain valuable vocational training and qualifications while still in school, helping them to develop the skills and knowledge required for their future career aspirations.
