Vocational Education and Training

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is widely recognised as a valuable part of a comprehensive secondary school’s curriculum offering.

The Catholic Schools Office is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 90488) which manages and supports the delivery of VET courses in systemic and congregational secondary schools across the Diocese of Broken Bay.

For information on the VET courses that are offered in our schools please click on this link: DBBVET Webpage

In addition, our students are supported to access externally delivered VET courses (through providers such as TAFE) if this curriculum choice best suits their needs.

Students can also access School-based Traineeships and Apprenticeships (SBATs). Careers Advisers and VET Coordinators in our schools will assist in the development of Training Plans that set out the way in which on-the-job and off-the-job requirements will be managed. This process involves the student, parents/caregivers, the employer and the RTO.

VET courses are generally offered as part of the Stage 6 curriculum but at some sites, these courses can be offered to Year 10 students. Students and parents are encouraged to discuss their VET questions with the Careers Adviser, VET Coordinator or VET teachers.
