Frequently Asked Questions
1 When do the courses run?
Courses can run from Monday to Friday during school time or after hours. See individual course descriptions for specific days and times.
2 Where do the courses run?
VET courses will be held across a range of settings from schools, purpose built skill centres, TAFE sites, on the job or a combination. See individual course descriptions for specific locations.
3 How do students get to the venue?
Students are expected to make their own way to the course location. If the course runs for the whole day then they do not go to their own school but rather the course location.
4 How much does it cost to do a course?
Course costs will vary and most costs are published on the course descriptors. For further clarification students should contact their School VET Coordinators.
5 How do I apply for a course?
Students should complete the enrolment form associated with the course of interest and submit it to their school VET Coordinator.
6 What do students wear to their course?
Some VET courses have specific clothing requirements which should be listed in the course description. For other courses students are expected to wear their full school uniform.
7 How will it benefit my SACE?
Each course will earn a number of SACE credits and these will be listed on the course descriptor. Completing a full Certificate III may be recognised by the SACE Board as the equivalent of a Stage 2 subject in regards to calculating an ATAR. It is advised to check with your School VET Coordinator for clarification.
8 How will affect my other subjects?
All students intending to undertake a VET course should consult with their School VET Coordinator or SACE Coordinator to clarify their SACE outcomes.
