Vocational Education and Training (VET) is specialised education and training that gives students skills and knowledge for work. VET operates through a national training system, and is delivered, assessed and certified by Registered Training Organisations (RTOs).
The SACE is designed to give students increased flexibility, including greater opportunities to have diverse forms of learning and achievement recognised. The SACE enables students to include a significant amount of VET in their studies. Students can gain recognition for up to 180 SACE credits at Stage 1 and/or Stage 2 for successfully completed VET.
At Loxton High School students have the opportunity to complete an Australian School Based Apprenticeship (ASBA) with a local employer. The Apprenticeship Broker is available every Wednesday morning in the library for student/family appointments.
The Industry Pathway Programmes (IPP) also offers students the opportunity to complete a Certificate 3 in a range of different careers including Child Care, Aged Care, Information Technology, Fitness, Automotive Engineering, CADD, Business Services and Animal Care. Courses vary from year to year and are dependent upon student numbers. These courses are offered regionally on a Thursday with a bus provided to transport students to their Riverland work provider.
The manager of the VET Programme will happily discuss the VET Programme in further detail if you wish to contact the school.
