VET for school age learners

There are a number of options for VET if you are a school-aged learner* in Tasmania.

You can access VET:

  • At school or college, as part of your studies
  • Under a training contract, in which you combine training and employment to gain a nationally recognised qualification.  A school-based apprenticeship or traineeship is a great option if you want to combine training and employment with your studies towards your Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE)
  • By undertaking a course at TasTAFE
  • By undertaking a course at a Trade Training Centre.

Talk to your parents and your school to discover your full range of options, as well as any requirements you should be aware of.
