VET (Vocational Education and Training) Delivered to Secondary Students allows secondary students to gain practical skills in a specific industry while undertaking the VCE or VCAL.

Programs are typically completed over one or two years and provide students with a qualification or partial completion of a nationally recognised certificate.

Victoria Polytechnic has delivered VET in schools for more than 10 years in partnership with 150 secondary schools in Melbourne’s west.

Our programs are taught by industry-experienced practitioners in world-class training facilities, and often include a workplace-learning component.
