Vocational Education & Training (VET)

What is VET?

Vocational Educational and Training (VET) programs can be undertaken as part of secondary school studies. VET programs offer students nationally or state recognised vocational certificates, which are endorsed for recognition in both the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) from the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA). Students enrolled in VET may also combine study and employment through School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships which allow students to do an apprenticeship or traineeship while they undertake their VCE or VCAL.

Edenhope College is partnered with the Wimmera Southern Mallee (WSM) VET Cluster which is a partnership of 18 senior secondary education providers delivering VET courses in the region. VET courses offered by WSM VET Cluster are delivered by Federation University (Horsham Campus), Longerenong College, Skillinvest, SuniTAFE and Horsham College.

VET courses offered can be found at the WSM VET Cluster website. VET courses are to be applied for by August of each year in preparation to start for the following year.
