VET for school-aged learners

In Tasmania, students in some schools can access VET courses from years 9-12, with most schools offering VET in years 11-12.

  • A VET course at school or college, as part of your studies (ask the school you will be attending about the course options. You can also use this tool of the Department of Education’s site to work through options.
  • School-based apprenticeship. This is a more formal arrangement where you start your apprenticeship under a training contract, with the view of continuing on to gain a nationally recognised qualification. You can combine this work with your studies to also gain your Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE).

Talk to your parents and your school to explore the full range of options and any requirements you should be aware of. In many cases, VET courses can count toward your TCE but if you’re unsure, ask your school for advice.
